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!!

2F8 is the IO address for one of your com ports.  Resolve that error and all should be fine.  

One or both of the drives being bad should not affect the IO ports.

The conflict is probably with a modem.
