It would seem that a little more information is needed. I presume that it is another computer that you are talking about aside from windows 7. Looks like you are trying to do a clean install on a wiped disk of windows 98? What program is detecting the virus, and at what point in the install?

Post back the specs of the machine you're installing it on too. I think I recall 98 startup suggesting an 'out of memory' error may be due to a virus. Because of limited addressing too much ram can do the same thing. With more modern computers that's the usual reason for those errors now when trying to install 98.

Or, if you're using a 98 startup disk because you think you can prep the drive for a later windows 7 install, well don't. Just boot with the windows 7 disk.
