After installing Windows 98, my scanner driver caused Windows 98 to stop responding.  After a reinstall of Windows 98 and unintstalling the errant driver, Windows 98 now starts to the "Microsoft Windows 98 Startup Menu", (e.g. Normal, Logged, Safe Mode, etc.)  After I select "Normal", Windows 98 starts up.  Can someone help me correct this bothersome problem?

You could this in a couple of ways. One of the easiest in my opion would be:
1. Install 'Tweak UI' from your Windows98 CD (this is not a standard component)
2. Reboot
3. open control panel
4. open 'Tweak UI'
5. goto boot tab-page
6. Make sure at least the line 'Start GUI automatically' is selected.
7. Make sure that the line 'Allow F4 to boot previous operating system' is NOT selected.
8. Select OK
9. close all apps and reboot your machine.

Your menu should have disappeared.
