Well so when you try to boot froml a cd you get an error? how far in the cd boot do you get? will it even begin loading anything or just give the error right away?

if that is so I would get a floppy with windows 98 oem bootdisk and fdisk and then format it, then use the cd. If it happens again the cd may be bad or the cd drive may be bad/dirty.

Where can you get that windows 98 oem bootdisk? Should I just download it and put it on a floppy?
