Specs: Windows 98
C drive is formatted, boot floppy allows the computer to boot ... sort of. This is the text on the screen after bootup is finished. I need what to do next.

When it stops at the A:\> prompt, pop in the Win98, then do the following:

A:\>
A:\>R: [press ENTER]
R:\>
R:\>setup [press ENTER]

Windows setup will begin.

So far so good, MUCH appreciated. But there's another hurdle ... the product ID. Is there a generic since there's no longer a copyright on Win98 or how do I find the key on the CD?
