If you are already running Windows 98, and it's already in your computer, then go ahead and click Next at the bottom of this page to completely skip this step.

First of all, you need a boot diskette to be able to get into the DOS prompt, so you can install Windows 98. Windows 98 should have come with a boot disk, but in the case you have lost it, head over to a friend's house and have him make you one. The easiest way to make a boot disk that will also give your computer CD-ROM Support by loading MSCDEX drivers, is by going into Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs, clicking on the Startup Disk tab, and then clicking on Create Disk. Now take this disk back to your computer, and stick both it, and the Windows 98 CD-ROM into your computer and let it boot up. You should get a prompt asking how you want to start the computer.

If you are using the disk included with Windows 98, then select "Start Windows 98 setup from CD-ROM". Windows setup will now begin. If you are using a boot disk you created, then choose "Start computer WITH CD-ROM support". After all the drivers load, then switch to your CD-ROM drive letter. If you only have one main parition or hard disk, then most likely your CD-ROM drive will by E:, as the D: becomes a RAM drive containing system files you may need, which was loaded by the boot disk. Once you are in your CD-ROM drive, type 'setup', and installation of Windows 98 will begin.

Windows 98 setup is pretty straight forward and simple, so there's no need to further discuss it. Proceed to the next page to discuss installing/configuring Windows 2000.
