|Now I'm confused? I thought you wanted to be able to install Windows, not get to the DOS prompt?|
Like I said, many Win98SE CDs are bootable, so all you'd have to do is go into the BIOS & change the boot order so that the CD-ROM is 1st, then boot off the CD & do the install.
If you need a boot floopy, I don't understand why you refuse to go to bootdisk,com & download the file from there? You don't actually download the bootdisk itself, you download a program that creates a bootdisk. Since you seem paranoid about getting a virus, do a virus scan on the file after you download it. Before you run the program, make sure your floppy disk is formatted & virus free, then run the bootdisk program you just downloaded. It will prompt you for the formatted floppy, then copy the files to the floppy & make it bootable. Then you can scan the newly created boot floppy for viruses again. After that, you should be good to go.
Personally, I've never gone thru these virus scanning steps. I recognize bootdisk.com as a reputable site that's been around for many, many years. Even though it's a free site, you simply won't stay in business if the product you're offering is infected.
BTW, bootdisks from bootdisk.com use the letter "R" for the CD-ROM drive
