Just a thought; when I first reformatted a hard dirve, I made the mistake of turning off the comptuer before re-installing the os. I had to use the win 98 boot disk to get DOS running, then I could install things from the CD drive. I don't know if that will work though since there's only 1 usb port, and two devices. Might be worth a try though. Definately couldn't hurt.

Sorry it took so long to reply back with my results. I made the 6-disk boot set and it went just fine..until disk 6. At the end of all of it, it pops up that ugly blue screen. It says UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME. I thought it might be a one-time problem so I tried the bootdisk set 2 more times, same result. I'll try and redo the disks again to see if there was a problem with the disk, but I don't believe there is. If anyone has an idea of how to fix this problem, it'd be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.
