Angry Formatting a Laptop running XP to install Win 98 SE

yes thats right and please dont tell me not to coz i am sick n tired of XP

I WANT NO XP

I DONT LIKE XP

period.


ok having said that...

how do i format my laptop to install win 98?

i dont have a floppy drive so how do i boot my laptop to install 98?

my win98 SE cd is a regular one i.e. non-bootable.


how do i create partitions on my hard disk ? like is it going to be done by going on dos prompt or can i just install win98 and then later on use some software like Partition Magic?

If your laptop supports USB booting you can boot from a USB key.
