out of curiosity, why windows 98?
Windows XP has better support for newer technology, and your computer is good enough for XP..

i installed the Boot98 to a Floppy Diskette and i insert the Diskette and restart my pc it then runs through etc etc and then gets to this part:

"Preparing to start Your Computer This may take a few minutes. Please wait... The Diagnostic tools were successfully loaded to drive 'D'

To Get help. Type HELP and Press ENTER"

Then i get this:

A:\ ( I think ) then i put Format.com in but says incorrect parameter or something

What am i doing wrong ?
