Hi,

Boot off floppy disk and run "fdisk" delete the partition and then create new partition. Reboot from floppy disk and type "format c:" when thats complete boot from your windows 98 cd and the setup should complete. Thats assuming your hardware is working properly.

Good Luck

The provided "Plug & Play Monitor" drivers should be sufficient, but we can't tell you where to get drivers for your other components without knowing what they are.
