Win98 restart

I have an AMDK6 2/333 with 128K running Win98. When I try to copy or unzip files to my "A" drive, Windows reboots about half way through. I can copy files form the drive with no problem. I ran SFC, it shows nothing. Any ideas?

Thank in advance

What bios are you using and what settings does it have regarding your Floppy drive (or other removable media)?

AMI plug & play Ver1.0a

Settings are: Generic NEC Floopy Disk

                      marked Removable    
for 20 points, I'll tell you that there's either an IRQ conflict or the floppy drive or cable is shorted or having problems.  Typically an easy problem is 50 points.
