I want to format the harddrive on my daughters computer and re-install Windows 98. How do I do it?

you want to format the whole hard drive including partitions. If not:-

Boot from your CD-ROM drive - change the BIOS settings to do this.

Insert the Windows installation CD and use it to format Drive C.

After format, reboot, and install Windows 98 from the CD-ROM drive.

Once intallation is complete, change your BIOS boot sequence back to what it was.

During Windows installation, after each restart, you will be asked whether to boot from Hard Drive or CD-ROM drive, choose hard drive.
