    Well, I finally got my Compaq working (installed a new HD) - however I have run into a problem. I formatted the hard drive, and went strait to installing Windows 98. It worked like any other install I have done, however when rebooting after being finished with the instillation, it freezes right after showing the Windows 98 cloud scene and ending up at a DOS screen. After searching the hard drive, I have noticed that it has no autoexec.bat. I reformatted and re-installed but came up with the same problem. I know it isn't my Win98 disk, because it is the disk that worked with the other Compaq we have. Any suggestions as to how to fix this problem?
