Make sure you started 'with CD support' and then log on to that drive, with the Win CD in it.If you have only one partition C: then your CD will be drive E: during this part(the start up disk loads a RAM drive into the next avaiable space so that will be D:, but following the installation your CD will be D: not E: because the RAM drive will no longer exist).
Type this at the A:>'E:' without quotes and press enter, you should get an E: prompt then type 'CD\WIN98' and press enter(this is a change directory command, CD\ and the dir. is WIN98 where the setup files are.
Now at the prompt E:\WIN98 type 'setup' press enter. You should here the CD drive spin up and the installation will start.
