when i start up from floppy it says
windosw98 has dectected that drive C does not contain a calid fat or fat32 partition.there are several possible causes.
1:the drive may need to be partitioned.to create a partition on the drive fun fdisk from the ms dos command promt
2:you may be using third party disk partitioning software.if you are using this type of software remove the emergency boot disk and restart your computer from a floppy disk
3:some viruses also cause your drice C to not register.you can use a virus scanning program to check your computer for viruses.
