Hello,

my computer is kinda screwed right now and I was hoping that anybody can help. I am not able to install anything, I always get an error message when I do. I have to get everything off of this computer somehow but my cd burner also does not work and I can't reinstall it so I am not going to try to uninstall, the cd-rom works but I can't burn anything. I am running Win98se.

I do have a laptop that I could be using, unfortunately, I can not connect to the internet with that for some bizarre reason.

Any ideas?

If you have access to a second pc you could install your hard drive as a slave and extract the files etc. that you need and burn them to cd.

Can you give us more info as to what precisely os wrong?

What error messages do you get?

You could boot with a Linux live CD - knoppix comes to mind - and use it to burn the files you need...
