Need help with Win. 98
    #3876171 - 03/06/05 05:53 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

OK so i have a old Comp i just found that has win 95 on it. but i need to upgrade it to 98. i placed the win 98 disc into the slot and everything runs as normal then i get this message, "your computer already has an OS installed which cannot be upgraded by the version of setup. you need to obtain the windows 98 upgrade"

so i guess my question is... how do i uninstall my OS system (win95) so i can install 98?
