The CD will probably be the D Drive so type

d:

and hit enter.

then try setup

Have you inclided the drive letter for the CD?

E.g. D:setup

  MAJ 13:30 26 Oct 2005

Type:

E:\setup

and press Return. Where E is the CD-ROM drive letter. Make sure you have chosen to "start with CD-ROM support" when that option appeared when you booted from the Win 98 floppy.

Bios set to first boot.
Loaded Win98 again from floppy.
Loaded tools etc.
Chose"start with CD-ROM support"
now at D:\>Prompt
tried the above.
D:Ent
D:\setup
Mesage, Device Drivers Not Found MSC001.

I don't know how you got to the D:\> prompt, Ex plorer, unless you typed D: But get back to the A:\> prompt and type:

E:\setup

The Win 98 floppy will load a Ramdrive (which will be d:) so your CD-ROM drive should move up a letter, if it was drive D: before, it will now be drive E: while the floppy is inserted.

Set the BIOS to boot from Floppy drive first, Ex plorer, not the CD drive.

Ok thanks for staying with me on this.

E:\setup = invalid file specification.

  splork 14:48 26 Oct 2005

type
cd e:
dir setup.* /s

when it finds setup.exe, CD to that path, then run it

  splork 14:48 26 Oct 2005

sorry, cd e:

dir setup.* /s


are two seperate commands
