'my hard drive got wiped. i installed ubuntu linux as it was all i had. since, i've found both a Windows 98 SE disk and a Windows ME disk. neither boot into set up on restart. I cannot make a boot floppy as it won't work in linux. I have another laptop that i can use but it doesn't have a floppy drive. I tried (and failed) to make a USB stick bootable, and failed. I'm stuck!'
any replies that i get will be passed onto him
