  Fintan 15:09 17 Feb 2005

I formatted the c drive on my laptop. It used to run win'98, but got riddled with virus' so I formatted the drive but I can't get the cd to run. What can I do to get an OS back on this thing?

Thanks alot.

Im stuck on command prompt, I think the system is running from the Bios. Any help would be great.
