    everything was just fine until I made Win98 as default to boot up first.

    the message i'm getting is:

    Cannot find a device file that may be needed to run Windows or a Windows application

    The windows registry or SYSTEM.INI file refers to this device file, but the device file no longer exists.

    If you deleted this file on purpose try uninstalling the associated application using its uninstall or setup program.

    If you still want to use the application associated with this device file, try reinstalling that application to replace that missing file.
