I posted a topic on this yesterday in the OS forum. From what I have read if you have 95 you can not go directly to 98SE. You must go to 98FE. If I am wrong though please correct me.

Only 1 reason and i solved it,attachments.
No more email requests unless i feel a 1 to 1 communication will be better and less confuseing to a newbie.
But everyone in the world is in terrible fear of
"Give my email address" you gotta be kidding.
So much for this wonderfull World Wide Web's abilities.

I think i said that but you need a W98 boot or properly called "system floppy disk" to fdisk,format and either do a DOS/W95 install starting with the 3 DOS floppys i can send or a W98 system disk,yours or a friends.
Of course you do need a W9X cd.
Did you think you didn't ? I suspect you did.

Default Ok...

The really big questions I have are what are the specs on this computer?
Are the 98 and 2000 cd's full install or upgrade cd's?
Is it a lap or desk system?

I took a p1 with 32megs of ram running 166mhz and loaded 98se on it and it works just fine. It had 95 on it and I formatted and did a fresh install of 98se. I have 2000 running on a p2 with 128megs at 266mhz and it's whoa momma fast. This one had 2000 on it already.
You don't need the floppy to install 98. Make the cd-rom the first boot device and have the cd in the drive when you bootup. It has all the partition and formatting commands on the cd. Follow the directions as they appear. If your floppy is dead then get 98 on the system and trouble shoot it from there.
