You will first have to delete NT 4 by doing an Fdisk on your hard drive. click here for step by step instructions on how to Fdisk.

Not sure recap, fdisk wont work on a NTFS partition, which NT4 could be on,if it is you will have to delete this before loading 98,partition magic will allow this, or if you have access to a NT4 ,2000 or XP, disc you can use this to delete the partition during the install process as soon as you have deleted the partition cancel the install, and then FDISK the drive with a 98 Boot disk.
