hi to you good folks......I've been given an old computer for the wee lass with win95 installed...told you it was an oldie.....I want to install win98se onto it but don't know where to start. I have a win98se floppy boot disk and win98se CD....where do I go from here please....I don't know the commands to type to install....dose the floppy format the drive which is small ready to accept win98se or do I need to do this first...if so, how do I do it.....sorry for annoying you good folks but I'm afraid, as you no doubt noticed, I'm a big bit thicker than your average user...simple as possible please...many many thanks...Andy

When you put the floppy in the drive and power the system up, do you get an A:> prompt?

If so, try popping the Windows CD in the CD drive, and typing:

dir D:

Hit the <ENTER> key and let us know if you get a listing of the CD contents please.

If you don't, there are other steps you need to take before proceeding.

I think we need to ascertain if that old PC has an IDE or a Panasonic CD-ROM in there! If it's a Panasonic drive, hooked up to an old soundcard, then some preparation needs to occur befor the Windows setup can proceed. ;)
