Install Windows 98 Faster
Depending on the type of computer you have, and the speed of your CD-ROM, Windows 98 can take over an hour to install. One way to speed the process up is to copy the base files to your hard disk drive. To do this, you first want to make sure you have at least 170MB of free space on your hard disk drive. Then,

  1. Put the Windows 98 CD in your CD-ROM, and cancel the splash screen that comes up.
  2. Go to Windows Explorer (Start, Programs, Windows Explorer).
    Go to your C: drive, and create a new directory (File, New, Folder). Call it something like win98cabs.
  3. Find your CD-ROM drive.
  4. Find the folder Win98.
  5. Highlight all the files in the folder (click once on the top file, then, while holding down the shift key, click once on the bottom file), click Edit, Copy.
  6. Find the new directory you created, make sure it's highlighted, then paste the files into it (click Edit, Paste).
  7. Take the CD out of your CD-ROM drive, then double-click the Setup.exe file from the new directory you just created.

Not only will this install Windows 98 faster, you will not have to put the CD-ROM into your computer every time you need to add or remove files anymore either.
