    Question Will it format if I install win98?

    I previously made a DOS (actually a Win95 Dos boot) mp3 machine that ran DAMP and qbasic....

    but now I changed my mind (AGAIN) and I decided to go win98 for the usb 4-ch sound system. If I install onto teh harddrive, will the win98 install CD re-format my HDD and erase all my mp3s?

    Free entrance to heaven? WOW! I DUN BELIEVE! JC!

    If you boot from the CD and run the OEM setup, it will. If you use the install disk that comes with it, yes, it will. So, use a regular boot disk with CD-ROM drivers and then run "setup.exe" from the root of the CD. You may have a problem installing the OEM on anything but a blank HD.
