Default Reformating

Hey people,

Im planning on reformating an old laptop thats currently running off windows me and im aiming to put windows 98 back onto it, im not sure how i can get windows 98 to install through MS-DOS, BIOS or whatever it uses etc so i can wipe the hard-drive clean. Im a complete noob to this and a little help would be appreciated. Thnx.

Boot your laptop from a windows 98 boot disk, this will start your laptop in MS-DOS mode. Type format c: this will format your hard drive. Insert your windows 98 CD/floppy's. Switch to the directory of your install media. For example if your installing from a floppy type A: to switch to drive A. Then type setup.

You can get a windows 98 boot disk here:
