    Hi
    I have a really weird problem.
    I made a copy of the Windows 98 SE Cd-Rom. I used a 40X Cdrom, performed a clean install and everything worked fine. Then my cdrom broke, i replaced it with an older 24X CDROM that is CD-RW compatitbale and the next time I tried to install Windows98 SE it said setup was interrupted and it couldn't find the file tsp32.dll it just stopped right around 60%. I fixed the 40X Cd rom and installed windows 98 fine but the cdrom tray is really worn in. Why wont my 24X cdrom work with windows98 it works with all the other cd's i have
    HELP

    It could be that it doesn't like the type of Disk you used. When you copied your win98 did you use a CDRW or CDR. Record to a CDR if you are going to use the disk on a regular CDROM drive.
    Or you might try copying the contents of the Win98 Folder to the hard drive first and installing from there. You may have better luck.
