Make a boot disk or use one from another OS, it will work on X9 & win2000/XP. To make a boot disk, get a floppy and put it in the A drive. Right click on format, choose quick format if it's got crap on it, and then make a boot disk.

Then reboot PC with this disk in the A drive. At the prompt of A:\ type C:\ and then at the prompt of C:\ type in C: format ...then remove the floppy disk, put the 98 CD in the rom drive and reboot. Install away.

If it's a big HD you have then partition it (use partition magic and save yourself the BS) so you can backup fast by dropping all the shit to the D drive, format the primary C drive and install clean/new OS + appz ect with ease. That's it.

Why do you want to put 98 on? 2000 or XP is better. It's the same input of hours to do, better invested IMO.
