The full version is designed to be installed on an empty hard drive.If it sees any version of Windows already installed,it won't run.This is no problem if you don't mind formatting your hard drive and starting from scratch.If you want to upgrade your existing configuration to Win98,you'll have to do as it says and get the upgrade version.
