Ok .... I think I've got into the Setup now.... on my computer, it's called "Startup". Is that right? Anyway, the choices are: FDD-1, HDD-1, Network, FDD-2, HDD-2, HDD-3, HDD-4, and PCMCIA. I don't see anything here that would indicate a CD-ROM drive. How can I tell what kind of BIOS I have? Thanx for your help
Unfortunately you're right. you will at least need the floppy to load the cd-rom drivers, you might try this, put in the win98 boot floppy, choose cd-rom support, when it boots to the command prompt put the disk in, type
D:\setup or D:\win98\setup
hit Enter and see if setup starts. The correct drive letter might be E: for the cd-rom, or even A: if things are really weird. Alas, you'll just have to fiddle arount till setup opens, unless someone comes along with an exact procedure. If something isn't working put the diskete back in without rebooting and enter A: to get back to the command prompt.
