I burned Windows 98 SE to CD using Nero 6 and when I try to boot up with it, it errors Disk I/O Error.
I'm trying to install it on my second drive D:\.
It autoplays fine in XP here but when I boot it errors what I stated above.
Also note that when it autoplays and I click "Browse this CD" it says "Please insert your Windows 98 CD-ROM".
I can't figure out the problem.
(please note that I have no floppy disks, so that part isnt an option -- unless its an absolute must)
Are there any websites these days which provide "tutorials" on properly burning Windows 98? (burning, not copying)

First, not all Windows 98SE CDs were bootable. Second, trying to install 98SE after Windows XP is already installed is nearly impossible. Windows 98 needs to be installed on the primary partition of the primary drive.
