it has landed up as a complete cods up on my part, in a nutshell, i have been putting the disks in the CD drive, about 10 minutes ago, just about to call it a day, when i thought of trying a disk in the dvd drive, and lo and behold, it said did i want to install win98, which it is doing at the moment..

anyway........thank you all for the help. but it was me..
