Hi
New to this forum but I decided to join since many reads on this site have given me tips and answers to almost all my previous problems. :)

I am semi novice computer literate and I am helping a friend install windows 98se on his Dell Optiplex 266Mhz (yah i know its a dinasour) but I only have an old copy of my WIn 98se disk the orig my dog ate (seriously) :D Anyways I have copied the entire disk to my new hard drive & i did format & fdisk properly but when I do e:setup i get a message that "windows setup requires 'largest executible program size to be at least 442368 bytes to run.

Am I doing something wrong :eek: I used the same disk on my last computer 4 years ago. Had no problems that I can remember!

I have windows XP on my own computer could I load windows XP to the Dell and then revert back to windows 98se cause XP needs faster processer.

Any sugestions

Getting ready to run computer over with my truck!! :mad:

Somethings gone wrong when you've fdisked or formatted re do the process. Remember to delete all partitions and then create a logical dos partition with fdisk. :)
