OK. I've got a Compaq laptop that has the interchangeable CDROM/Floppy drive bay. The harddrive is newly formatted and I'm ready to install Win98. How the heck am I supposed to load the CDROM drivers if I can't have the cdrom AND floppy installed simultaneously? In other words, I need the floppy drive in there to boot from and to load the dos cdrom drivers...but at the same time I need the cdrom drive! There are no other options for hooking up a cdrom or floppy on this computer...
what the heck can I do
Any help would be great.
Win98 CD is a bootable CD. Just put that into you cdrom drive and set your bios to boot from CDROM. Problem solved, the CD is a booting the machine and installing the OS. One thing Microsoft did right.
