Hey, firstly i would like to explain my situation, a neighbour has given me his old pc though i is working it is missing a hard drive.
I had a old hard drive laying around and have put that in. How can i find out how big this hard disk is? it says sg3 does this mean its 3 gig? Anyway the neighbour also gave me a win 98 2nd edition copy, how would i go about installing this version of windows? Do i need a boot disk if so how do i know which one i need?
Windows 98 SE OEM or
Windows 98 SE Custom, No Ramdrive.
What does atapi cd rom: failure, mean?

If anyone can answer any or all of my questions it will greatly apreatated :) Thankz.

Just a standard Win98 or WinME Startup disk made on any virus free computer. Off Bootdisk.com the Win98 FE or SE OEM.

Please see the following printable attachment for more information on "Starting from scratch."

Yep, it says how big it is on the front of the drive on the label. SG3 might indicate a 3 Gb drive. What brand is it? The storage size is usually stated in fairly plain language.
