|That error message can occur if you boot with a 98 floppy bootdisk but don't have a 98 installation disk in the cdrom. Or the cdrom can't read the disk or the cdrom wasn't properly configured by the floppy bootdisk.|
Please list the steps you're using in your attempt to install 98.
Edit Check the autoexec.bat lines for a bootdisk here:
Note that message shows up under NOCDROM. So likely the bootdisk isn't detecting the cdrom or maybe you don't even have one installed. Post back some specs for your system. The generic drivers on the bootdisk won't detect some of the older proprietary cdroms or a newer SATA cd/dvd drive.
