Do you intend to run Windows 98 from a CD-ROM or do you want to create a backup copy that you can re-write on the hard disk when you want? --Roke

You may disable the swap file, click start -> settings -> control
panel -> system. Choose the performance tab. Now click virtual
memory. Now check Let me spcify my own setting. Now check disable
virual memory. This is advisable only if you have 64 or more RAM.
Also you CD-Writing software may not take this kindly and destroy
the CD. Another method is to locate the swap file on another
partition which you aren't backing up for instance on the D
drive. You will find ways of doing it by choosing the hard disk in the performance tab.

Use the copy CD option of your CD writer, eg Adaptek EZ CD. Hope this is for archival backup. Otherwise Gates will be upset.
You need a std cdrom and a cd writer in your system.

IT IS MY INTENTION TO COPY THE VERSION OF MY 100% LEGAL
REGISTERED VERSION OF WINDOWS 95 (ON ONE SYSTEM) AND WINDOWS 98
(ON MY OTHER SYSTEM) ONTO A HOME MADE BURNT CD ROM.

THE WINDOWS THAN INSTEAD OF LOSING TIME,NERVES AND SO I WILL
TAKE MY SELF BURNT CD ROM AND OVERWRITE THE VERSION ON MY HARD DISK AND GETTING MYSELF IN JUST  COUPLE OF MINUTES A NEW 100%

You will need the swap file and temporary files on another drive. Otherwise you should be able to copy just the win directory to the cd. Or maybe copy the win directory to a dummy directory, and then burn the dummy directory to the cd. Actually unless the two systems use identical hardware, you will have problems with the registry.

Take a look at www.ghost.com, they make a good HD-image-product,
Try it yourself.

Make image of hd (100%) the same as you requested, then burn the image on cdrom, boot system with flop (included cdrom drivers/ghost etc.) reload image on HD.

Works for me
S.A.P.

go to www.ghost.com and get a demo version of their software.  It will do what you want without crashign Windows... It does a bit-by-bit copy rather than file-by-file...
