why would you, starting from scratch, load 98 first? that can create a mess in itself :eek:
alot think the first has to be already installed, even with an upgrade copy you can do a fresh install, then file structure, drivers and ntfs can all be correct and in place. on load it will ask to see another disk (98, Me, NT, 2k, etc), spin it up to make sure its OK, then go about its way just like a full version. most everything Microsoft makes does this, including , say, office..

did the floppy work just fine before? is there xp drivers, say for the motherboard chipset and the likes that now need to be installed?
