Default Windows 98 re install question

Hi all
I have windows xp installed on my old pc but due to problems i wish to reinstall win 98 and delete win xp.

The drive is partitioned into 3 sections. xp is on drive c (ntfs) and i wish to install win 98 on drive d which is fat 32.

How do i tell the computer to install win 98 on the d: partition and not c:? I keep getting a " not enough room on c: " error.

Also what commands in ms dos do i use to install from cd rom to d partition?
Thanks

Get a Windows 98 bootdisk from bootdisk.com and type fdisk, then delete the partition Xp is on, then make a new partition and install 98. Why are you going back to 98, what's wrong with XP?
