: 1st all, please tell me that the laptop is not a stolen good.
: If you do not need any existing data, try set up boot sequence from floppy drive first in bios, then have Win9x boot disk in floppy drive "A". At the time PC boot from floppy disk, press Shift-F5, than type "fdisk". You should be able to remove existing HD file system then.

Sounds like an IBM ThinkPad 850 or older. To get to the BIOS, hold down the F1 key while booting up. This will allow you to access the BIOS. Are you sure that it's not a BIOS password that it's asking for? Have you called/emailed the seller for the password?
