I have the above computer as a P350. Had to format the 4 gig drive, put
W98 se in all went well except that now it will only boot as a new install
ex= [enter # 1 for CD Rom support] then after CD Rom drivers are loaded I
get [cannot read from A:\] abort retry fail. When I hit ..[abort] it will
then start w98.
any ideas ??
I dont have a restore disk. and there is NO option in Bios to change boot
order.

thanks
Charlie

Not sure on your issue, but the processor in your 5204 is an AMD K6/2 350,
not a Pentium.
