With a new PC with no OS would I put a WIN98 SE startup disc in floppy and then install Win98SE with the CD or is it more complicated?

You might find that you can boot straight from the cd but if not it is exactly as you say, you may have to format the hard drive thou.

Don't forget to get all your drivers together as well and install the motherboard ones first once you have finished installing 98.
