Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Isn't going to happen..

The W98SE .cab files are too large for regular formatted FDs (1.39MB)- you need a special formatting programme to make the FDs formatted to about 1.7MB. Microsoft deliberately made the W98SE .cab files too large for regular FDs - supposedly to stop piracy which is what you are trying to do btw!!

Also, if you were going to install Win98 completely, it needs about 300 megs of hdd.. That means you need about 210 floppies for everything..
