I never used a bootdisk. Never had to. But yeah, It's all okay now. I guess the setup just didn't want to work last night. But it worked this morning and now it's 100%. I'll be sure to keep the bootdisk site in mind though incase I need one. Thanks.

Use floppies split with Win98 images
Use Bootable CD (I have tried this it works)
Use 98 boot floopy (I have tried this it works)
Use a Jaz drive (I have tried this it works)
Boot of a Flash Drive (I have tried this it works)

I'm gathering you forgot to take the XP cd out during the finalization part of installation and it just kept starting over.
