okay, tried that still not working. it says that it doesn't recognize format as a command. what does the erase command do? I assume this isn't what we want though.

Why not try to solve the W98 problems ? Can you get to normal mode?
What are these problems ?
Do you have a W98 system disk that contains format.com ?
It's also best to use fdisk first.

Crazyman, I may know what your problem is.

Bluto is correct, you need to partition first, so use the "fdisk" command - it's on the Windows 95 startup disk if not on the 98 one.
