    If you are talking about your quick restore cd, that should be put in before you boot the computer. You may need to make sure that cdrom is one of the first bios boot options.

    We need a touch more information here, if you have upgraded Win98 to ME using an upgrade disk then at some point in the installation process you will have been asked 'do you want to save information to enable to you to return to windows 98' or some similar wording, if at this point to save space you said NO then you can't return if you said Yes then all you need to do is go to the control panel, select Add/Remove programmes and select remove Win ME.

    If however like the other poster suggests its your computers quick restore Cd you are refering to then you either need to get the machine to boot from the Cd or first use a boot disk which again should have been supplied with the restore CD.

    By the way don't forget if you use a quick restore CD your machine will return to the same state it was when you got it out of the box i.e. all the prgrammes or data stored on it since it was brand new will be gone ! so make sure that is Ok before you do it :)
