The best way to do it is reformat your hard drive and then install 98

If you need help on how to do that, just ask

Reset the computer into DOS. Format the hard drive, reboot and insert a windows 98 boot disk (www.bootdisk.com) and follow the onscreen instructions, I suggest you backup important data to a CD or such.

Yeah, go into DOS and do format C: - then reboot with the Windows 98 installation CD in (won't work with an upgrade version) and install from there. If you're bored you can read the information about all the new stuff in it from Windows 95! But I doubt you'll get that bored.

Good idea is to backup your Data as ComputerFreak said.

Lol, no, its not a very good. Just backing up files will generally do. Or using Files and Settings Tranfer Wizard.
