First, how large is the hard drive? If you don't know:
Boot up with your bootdisk. Choose 'cdrom support'. At the a:\> prompt type fdisk and enter. Answer Y to 'large disk support', then option 4. What does it say under 'total disk space'
Also on that page, does it show a primary dos partition?
If no, hit ESC and choose option 1--create dos partition. It'll analyze the drive and then ask how much space you want in the partition. For convenience choose to use all the space. When it's done, reboot again with the bootdisk, making sure to choose 'cdrom support' and go to FORMAT below.
If yes, hit ESC twice until you're back at the a:\> prompt and go to FORMAT below.
At the a:\> prompt type format c: and enter. When it's done, and with the 98 cd in the cdrom type the R:\setup and enter, where R: is the cdrom drive letter indicated when you booted up with the bootdisk.
If you only have an upgrade disk you'll need the disk of a previous version of windows--either 3.1 or 95--to verify you're eligible to use the upgrade version.
