Reinstalling Win98

I currently run Windows 98 (FAT 32) this was an upgrade from Windows 95.
If I wanted to format my Hard drive and re-install Windows 98 again, how would I do this, bearing in mind that it is now FAT 32?

if you just format the HD then it will still be FAT32 and there wouldn't be any problem with reinstalling Win98. Before you do this make sure you have a Win98 bootdisk with the CD-drivers (if you made one through add/remove, startup disk tab then you have that)
If this is an upgrade version then it will ask you for the Win95 disk to make sure you have it, if you don't have that then you can go here and download these disks that will fool the install program into thinking you are upgrading.
