    I would like to uninstall Windows XP and install Windows 98. Can anyone give me some sort of a summary as to how to go about it. Such as where or how do I uninstall Windows XP-do I have to reformat and partition etc.
    Thank you for your help
    Chuck:confused:

    Download a windows 98 bootdisk if you haven't one and then set the bios to boot from A drive first. Then insert the bootdisk and the 98 cdrom. Restart the system and select "with cdrom support". From the a prompt type format c: and let it run. When completetype setup and let windows 98 install.

    All went well. It was a piece of cake. I always did like Windows 98 better than XP.
    Thanks-Chuck
