what we need to do is copy the Himem.sys file to the windows directory.
I am going to assume that your CD is D drive if not replace the drive letter with what ii should be.
Start you 98 machine change to your cd drive.At the D:>copy himem.sys c:\windows enter
then rebbot. If it boots to the c: prompt c:>win hold down the shift key all the time the computer boots. Does it start?
