Use a Win98SE bootdisk and FDISK to partition, activate and format the harddisk. (best of all disconnect your normal harddrive, so you cant accidentally format it *g*). After that use the SYS command to transfer a DOD system to the new harddisk (eg.amke it bootable).<P>Then boot from your normal harddisk with the new harddisk still attached. Copy the installation files from the CD to the harddisk, for example to a directory "WinCD".<P>Then bootthe notebook from the new harddisk and install windows.<P>More details are here:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.onecomputerguy.com/install/win9x_install.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.onecomputerguy.com/install/win9x_install.htm</A>
