Is it an iso file?

If so this is a disk image just use your burning software to burn the iso file to a CD.

If you attempt to make a Win 98 boot disk on a floppy formatted by XP
It will probbly NOT work.

Right click on the ISO image file and select 'copy image to CD'.

You will need to download/burn iso image from above link and then boot from cd drive,rather than burning files to disc.(as far as im aware)
