I purchased an oem copy of 98 and deleted the logo.sys - which according to microsoft you don't need (the computer store put their logo on - i don't want it), but now the start up screen pops up when i turn the computer on, even though i've been up and running for 3 months with 98.  Any way to stop setup or what should i do?

Are you talking about the splash screen during boot up?  It really isn't a setup screen, it meant to be shown...  If you really don't want it, you can install TweakUI off the Win98 CD:

D:\tools\reskit\powertoy (D = CDRom)

At TweakUI's control penal>boot deselect 'display splash screen while booting'

i apologize if i was unclear, i am talking about the win 98 setup screen - it just so happens that I believe it was coming up because the cd was in the cd-rom when i booted up - causing the setup screen to come on - at least this is what i think is happening - if anyone can verify this it would be greatly appreciated as to why exactly this does happen.

I don't quite follow, what setup screen?  If the Win98 CD is already in the drive during boot, then it would not autorun, on the other hand, if the CD is placed in the drive after windows boots, then it will autorun.  To stop it from autorun, hold shift key while the CD is loading...

If you're talking about the Win98 tour thing that pop up when startup, there's a check box in lower left corner, if it's checked it will show up...
