It may be possible to get it going without a CD. Give make/model, any problems encountered before it quit.

bettyr, was this pc used on the internet? If so, did you have a firewall and anti-virus program running and updated? Is it still internet capable?

The title of this thread is a bit misleading. It sounds like you want a Windows 98 installation disk. A boot disk will just boot your computer to DOS. Boot disks don't install operating systems. They boot up the computer in a way that allows you to install an operating system from a CD.

If you're looking for a Windows 98 installation disk, you might want to have the moderators change the title of the thread. You can buy a Windows 98SE installation CD here for $43.
