I am wondering what boot disk I would need if I had a windows 98 computer(To get a C Prompt if this is the right thing). If this is the right thing will the boot disk work for all OS.

Thanks,
T-Man

You can boot directly from the CD to install

You use specific boot discs for each OS

In addition to the information Keith has given you, be aware that booting with the 98 bootdisk will initially result in several options to start the machine. At this "Options Screen", you will want to press the Shift and F5 keys together to get the command prompt. This will result in an A:\ prompt. At this prompt, type C: and press "Enter" to get the C:\ prompt.
