I tried to upgrade Win 3.1 to Win 98 and the installation stalled.  I totally messed it up so I formatted my C drive and now need to get a bootdisk with CD Rom support so I can install Windows 98 from my CD Rom.

i would try a couple of things.  check www.bootdisk.com but make sure that they have a full boot disk available, meaning one with edit, and format on it.  also if your pc is even relatively new you can set the bootup sequence in you bios to allow you to boot from CD and just put your win98 cd in your drive and go.  

the boot disk with format and edit is important in case you need to make changes, also make sure it has fdisk so you can play with partitions if you need to.  if you cant find one like this i can send you to one you can try just let me know.

hope it helps

i can send the files to you if you want.
they are less than 1MB and you can throw them onto a floppy and boot from it.
