Find a friend with win'98 and make another one, is my advice. Don't forget to put MSCDEX.EXE on it. It should just barely fit. Good Luck! :laugh:

Honestly, I'm not sure. It's been some time since I last used win '98. Sorry I couldn't help you more. :frown: Here's a *bump* for someone who might know.

Check the cables on the FD drive. Sometimes people forget about that little detail when building computers.
Or, maybe one of the drives is bad. Try making a boot floppy with another PC or swap the FD drive of the unformatted PC with the other one.
