Arrow Windows 98 SE installation cd

Ok, So i triple formatted my computer and want to reinstall win98 SE.

But of course, I totally forgot about it asking me for an "operating system backup cd" to install, instead of just being able to use the one cd labelled "windows 98 second edition restore cd"

now, I'm trying to find an ISO file that I can use to burn onto a cd to make installation of Win98SE possible.

If I unformat my computer, IS IT POSSIBLE to get the ISO file from my computer? or am I going to have to resort to bittorrent or ?

Also, could anyone provide me with steps on how to ... burn an iso onto a cd so that i can install win98se?

thanks so much.

There is a nice little program that I have called isorecorder (freeware)
You just install it on your computer so that whenever you click on an iso image you just pop in a blank cd and it burns it for you. That simple.

Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"

"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"

whole story here:
