that should run xp just fine but if you still want to go to windows 98 you should know all the software out there isent supported by windows 98 anymore so its going to cause you more problems then you would like but if you STILL want to do it
you need a floppy disk and it needs to be formated to a win98 boot disk make sure theres oakcdrom.dll in those files on the floppy disk put it in and reboot to dos from there go to the cd rom drive
normaly you would type cd D:\setup.exe that will start the install as long as you have the cd in GOOD LUCK
you have to use xp os.because windows 98 is tatally back dated. thats why its not opening. or you can check it into another xp os. computer if it is open then your sure that windows 98 is not supporting, or if it is not open then your pendrive has some problem.
When you format something you WILL lose all of the data that was there. I would also recomend upgradeing to XP, 2000, or NT. You may need to reinstall the OS. If you need instructions ask me and I can help.
this is tricky as win98 is not supported and can not work on faster processors, The book says 2 gig but I had a problem on 1.8 ghz.
the next problem is win98 does not rceognize ntfs file systems. so a bootable partion manager (like linux GParted) would have to be run, to shrink the ntfs partition without altering content to allow another partition to be created then formatted into FAT32 so you could load 98 from a bootable cd.
This is a little difficult but it can B done :) Firstly I dunno if ya need to re-format ya drive? perhaps first ya could try to "Repair" of Win98? If that doesn't work,then, perhaps ya may have to re-format. If the Win98 is on a SEPARATE drive or Partition this also makes a difference....
Basically ... repair/re-install win98, then do a repair of ya Boot menu for XP, as Win98 sets up an incorrect Boot up for XP, and thus must be "Fixed" so XP will boot & show a Dual boot menu..
