Hi,

    You could do a boot to Dos (make sure you have access to your CD-Rom drive from there) use deltree or del to delete your old Win95 files and folders and run 98s' setup from there via your dos prompt.

Or you can copy the installation files of your 98 cdrom into a folder (i'e 98setup) and go to a dos prompt; deltee or del your old 95 files and folder; and enter you 98setup folder and type "setup."
