    If you have just one partition on your hd, then you can boot with a win9x boot disk and run fdisk. Have fdisk delete the current partition; it may be ntfs and you will need to "delete non-dos partition" Once you finish create one or more partitions and format. Restart and choose cd support and begin the install by changing to the cd drive and typing "setup"

    Unless there is a compelling reason to go to win9x, I would continue to use xp. XP [and all nt based os] are superior to win9x based os. Post what your problem is with xp, perhaps we can help you with it.
