You don't mention if this is an upgrade (over what operating system) or a fresh install. You can try running the Setup with the /d option which tells windows to ignore current settings from your existing setup.

Searching the Microsoft Knowledge base, there are a few other suggestions but they are hardware specific, such as a specific BIOS or Video card.

Try the above and let me know how that works.

Good luck,
David

Also, where in the process do you get the error? After answering a specific question in the setup process? Or before any questions are asked?

well it's a fresh install david
and it gives the error after asking a question but not really a specific question, cause it gives the error after differents questions every time i try to install the win95 or win98.

So the drive is freshly formatted? No operating system on the hard drive at all?

What hardware do you have:
PC:
Video:
Modem:
Anything "out of the norm":

You have both Win95 & Win98 install CD's?
