I am trying to install windows 98 on 90 megahurtz pc with a 1.3 gig hd..We have already fdisk and reformatted still having the same problem.The pc doesnt freeze until it gets plug and play installation.When you hit restart it says ISO corrupt file or low memory.The system had 98 on it before it was wiped out..Not sure if she had a virus before this or not..Could a virus cause this???Thanks for your time....

Try removing all except floppy drive, one hd, and video card. After getting win98 to install add in cards one at a time. See if this procedure cures your problem.
