If I understand, you have W98 installed and you want to upgrade to XP. Set your BIOS to boot from the CD drive click here thyen restart with the XP disk in the drive. Follow the prompts.

I'm just wondering why you inserted the 98 startup disk.

If you mean that you now have XP installed and now don't get the windows desktop appearing and instead get the A prompt just take the floppy disk out of the drive and press reset on the front of your PC case or press and hold these three keys at the same time
