Win98 and my display adapter--

Having a problem installing Win98.  I get a lock-up when it tries to ID the PCI display adapter.  I cannot go into Safe Mode either, because it locks up there too.  Any ideas?

There is a compatibility issue with some PCI-based
display adapters. If you have a PCI-based computer
and your computer stops responding at any of the
following times:

- On the first startup after installing your PCI
  display adapter
- In safe mode Startup
- When your display is set to 640x480, 16 colors

replace the Vga.drv file by copying:

\Drivers\Display\Vga\Vga.drv to your Windows 98\System
folder

If you are installing Windows 98 from a CD-ROM, copy
Drivers\Display\OldVga\Vga.vxd to your Windows 98\System
folder. If you are installing Windows 98 from floppy
disks, contact Microsoft Technical Support to get this
updated file.
