    Thanks much.

    If you have win98, just go to controlpanel's applet
    add/remove programs. Click on startup disk tab.
    If you have win95, go to a computer with win98
    and make a startup disk with win98. It will boot
    win95's and add's cdrom support.
    If you don't have win98 computer download a
    win98 start up disk from:

    Just go here and download one....save it to your desktop, double click on it, you'll be prompted to place a blank floppy disk in the floppy drive and you should be good to go......

    The files you would need are all those on the starttup disk. Just copy everything from the floppy to the CD, a Win98 FE or SE or WinMe Startup disk). Of course those are the only files you can have on the CD outside a folder. Everything else must be in a folder( you can try that). Asd far as I know those are the only files that can be on the CD.
