Still having problems getting the files?

Create a Folder on your desktop and name it Bootdisk...Now, go to the Firefox browser...click on "Tools" and then "Options" and click on "Downloads" in the left pane. Check the box next to "Save all files to this folder:" and then use the drop down menu next to it to choose "Other" and choose the Bootdisk folder you created on the desktop.

Go HERE and download the Windows 98 SE (OEM version). It will download to the Bootdisk folder.

If you can't get the file or burn it
you might be best to go to your friends and put the file on floppy
then go back to Page 8 post No.114 and try that.
I think the floppy option would be the easier option.
Have posted where to go and what to look for on Page 9 post 129

Did you format the floppy disk?

Nope...we're still fine. Left click on the first one to hilite it then hold the Ctrl key down and left click the others one at a time until they are all selected. Now right click on any of them and choose "Copy"...Open the floppy drive and right click anywhere in the blank window and choose "Paste".

Let me regroup a little......was it a zip file or single folder that landed on the desktop or a group of individual files? (Should be 18 files in the OEM bootdisk)

LOL...Yeah...and now the fun begins!

Turn the dead machine on so you can open the cd-rom drive drawer. Put the floppy in the Win98 machine and put your Win98 cd in the cd-rom drive and close the drawer. Now hit Ctrl + Alt + Delete to reboot.

You should get an options screen listing 3 options...Choose Start with CD-Rom support.

Let me know how it goes....
