Default windows 98 startup disk

hi
How do i make a windows 98 startup disk. I am using windows Xp.

the reason why i want to make a windows 98 startup disk is that i will use the windows 98 startup disk to install windows 98 on my naew machine, and then install windows xp over it.

i tried to install widnows xp on my new machine, but my new hard disk does not want to boot from the windows xp CD i i tried the 6 disk solution, but i am having problem with the second disk...

You can boot Win98 from your CD by setting your BIOS to read a cdrom first.
