I want to install win 98. I heard that it is a good idea to uninstall win 95 before running the 98 setup. Correct?
How do I uninstall win 95 when I don't have it on cd (it came with a quick restore from Compaq).

You don't really uninstall windows 95. What you are talking about is formatting your drive and starting from scratch. Of course this means you need to reinstall all your Apps and have a backup copy of your data.

In your case, it sounds like an upgrade to win98 would be better. But why upgrade. For the most part, if you have an older PC that came with windows 95, you should stick with that.
