I'm a little confused. By download do you mean install your windows?
Where did the windows disk come from?
Is it a full installation or a upgrade version?
Is it a Genuine Microsoft disk with the hologram, recovery disk or downloaded and burnt to a cd?

Let me ask are you using a floppy disk to boot or is it only the cdrom drive?
Also how many hard drives and cdrom drives are in your system?

OK any issues with the cdrom before this?
Is the installation disk scratched or dirty?

OK wait so are you trying to install Win98 or XP?
If Xp where did the disk come from?

OK so lets clarify some things first.
Is the XP still installed on another system right now?
Was the XP disk included with your computer or did you buy it separately from the computer?
Is the XP a branded type like HP, Dell, Compaq or something like that?
