sounds like you want to reformat

put your win98 startup disk into the floppy drive if you dont have the disk then make one then with the disk in reboot the pc and choose the option "without cdrom support" it will boot to a: prompt from that disk type in "format c: /s" without the quotemarks and it will reformat your harddrive and put the sys files on it so you can boot the pc when finished make sure you are doing this from a:  drive

if you need anything else please repost and we will be happy to help

ok you should have a floppy disk called "windows 98 startup" which is created when you first put win98 on your pc if you dont have this disk you can make one by going to start button then to control panel then to add/remove programs then click on the tab labeled startup disk the choose create disk....follow the prompts from there...after the disk is created remove the cd and leave the floppy in the drive and reboot the pc when it reboots choose the option to start without cdrom support it will start at the a: which is the floppy you just made from that drive type without quotes "format c: /s" then hit enter then it will say something like formatting this drive will destroy all information do you want to continue choose yes then enter button your pc will start the format procedure when it is done hit enter again now put your win98 cd back in and reboot the pc this time choosing the start the pc with cdrom support and it should start the install program for win98 if it doesnt type in "e:" and then it should be at the prompt for the cdrom type in "setup" and hit enter and it should begin from there and everything from there is just following the prompts

if you use the winXP cd then just  put the cd in and reboot and it should begin the install if it doesnt then reboot the pc and tap the delete key as it is booting up and it should put you in bios then change the order of the boot process to boot from cdrom first and everything should go just fine
