I decided to re-format my computer from windows xp and take it back to windows 98 because I felt that xp slowed it down some. It's not a new computer. Anyway I couldn't seem to format easily the xp and eventually I thought I'd managed it. However, I now find that at the ms dos prompt I can't access my cd drive because all I seem to see is D: is now an MS-Ramdrive and the files in this are not recognisable to me and mostly I can't now load windows 98 or anything for that matter. HELP! :tazz: :)

Do you want to remove all the data on the computer and install 98 or remove XP and retain the existing 98 files
