got a Bh6 abit board. everything is installed. when booting for the first time trying to load 98 does not access the floppy instead an error comes up that says "conflict I/O ports:2F8".  Is this because the floppy is not hooked up right or the harddrive is not hooked up or one or both are bad?? please help really appreciate it!!

The conflict is probably with a modem.
