Okay.. here goes. Had windows 95 on the PC.. FDISK'd and formatted.

Want to install full versuion of WIndows 98 for friend. What is the key
combo to get at the CMOS settings.. or what shall I do to get the system to
see the CDROM for a WIndows 98 install?

Get 'disk unusable' at the moment.. that's scary.

Help?
