To install Windows 98 you have to boot the PC from the CD -- you can't install it with DOS commands. Read this: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topi...

If you can boot the setup floppy, you can install without the cd.

The setup floppy works in conjunction with the CD.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

The contents of the cd can be copied to a directory and the setup run from there.

Oh, that's what you meant....

Sure thing, I found it the best way to do it on W98, always kept a copy on the HD.

I'm not sure the OP is trying to install windows. The 'cds' is part of the toshiba model number.

Dine, are you trying to install 98? Or is this a computer that's already running 98? If it's already running 98 did anything happen to to it or did you make any changes prior to having that problem?
