Go to

http://www.allbootdisks.com

and make a boot floppy for win98se, because the winME floppy doesn't have format on it. With the boot floppy in your computer restart it. When the A:\> comes up type in

format C: /s and hit Enter.

Restart the computer with the boot disk still in it by hitting ctrl-alt-delete once, choose "with cd-rom support". Now I beleive they use R: for the cd-rom drive letter so after you put the installation disk in type in

R:\setup

after the prompt comes up and hit enter and the setup process should start. Some computers will boot from the cd-rom but not all older ones.

You probably didn't do anything wrong. You most likely haven't got the right drivers for you video card yet. The message is from your monitor saying, in all likelyhood that the video refresh rate is too high. Do you happen to know the model/part no. of your video card/device? You can go to the device maakers website to find the drivers.
