After trying to install bootmagic and the installation failed.  I get the following message on system boot up;

Can not find bootmagic.img press any key to boot to the active partition.

I can boot to my windows 98 but I do not know how to get rid of the error message.  Any suggestions.

To reinstall your original windows boot loader, open up a dos terminal from windows and type "fdisk /mbr".
