    And, if, I am not sure from what you wrote if this is the case, IF you cannot get on Windows 98 to make a bootable disk, you can make a LiveWindows 98(Like with Ubuntu, or other flavors of Linux, where you can run the OS straight off the CD), however, it is very long and tedious to make:

    Or, you could save yourself the trouble and use this:

    Lol Vol,

    Also your own 98 cd should be bootable.

    I dunno, there is a certain allure to making a LiveWindows98 CD. Even though it would take a while, I would do that, as it is just...fun.

    well it'd certainly let you play those old dos games better without the need for a partition or dosbox... although dosbox works pretty good now.
