hey... i know how too install win98 i have been doing it since it came out. the thing is that there is NO HARD DRIVE!!!!!....... C-Drive is a network drive!!!! and it says "if you have ntfs or hpfs installed on your hdd please remove it" but....... if i run setup like this --->"setup /t:c:\temp" it seems to install the temp file no problem but it won't copy windows to the drive

I apologize for the misinterpretations. Did you have recently any OS besides Win 98, did you recently installed Win XP? The NTFS file format is a partition intended for the Win XP formats. Win 98 needs a FAT32 file format partition in order for it to be installed succesfully. Review this LINKS for additional infos. Read more on articles with regards to partitioning/formatting.
