an odd error- it occurs when installing Win98.  looks like it happens when the file chkdsk.exe is being installed on the package.  It's ruining my installation, because I then have to do it again.  any ideas?

Though I really need more info about your computer, I ran a search through Microsoft's support site and came up with this to start with:

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q181/3/39.asp

-----------------------
The information in this article applies to:

           Microsoft Windows 98

      SYMPTOMS

      When you attempt to install Windows 98, you may receive the following error message when Setup attempts to copy
      the Chkdsk.exe file:

         Setup Error # 5, Access is denied


      CAUSE

      This behavior can occur if RSE Software Magic Folders is installed on your computer.

      RESOLUTION

      To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

        1.Click Skip File to allow Setup to continue without copying the Chkdsk.exe file.

        2.After Setup has finished, enable access to the Chkdsk.exe file in Magic Folders. To do this, in Magic Folders, click
           Temporarily Enabling Chkdsk Access on the Utilities menu.

        3.Extract a new copy of the Chkdsk.exe file using the System File Checker tool. To start the System File Checker tool,
           click Start, click Run, type "sfc.exe" (without quotation marks) in the Open box, and then click OK.

           For information about how to use the System File Checker tool to extract a file, click Start, click Help, click the Index
           tab, type "system file" (without quotation marks), double-click the "System File Checker" topic, click "To extract
           system files from your installation disks," and then click Display.
--------------------------

Take your time and only accept the answer that works.
