I just formatted the 'C' drive in my daughter's old Packard Bell
hand-me-down and when I try to install Win'98 SE, I keep getting the
following error towards the end of the installation process (after "starting
windows for the first time")*

I used the same Startup disk that came with the Windows '98 CD that I'm
installing from. PLEASE HELP, my grandkids are mad at me for taking their
computer away! Thanks in advance,

"You started your computer with a version of MS-DOS incompatible with this
version of Windows. Insert a Startup diskette matching this version of
Windows and then restart.
The system has been halted. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart your computer."

P.S. I did what it told me to do but it just sent me into a circle, with the
same error as a result.
