how to find the id code or oem to install

I have moved and want to install 98 on old computer.  I can't find the book that had the id code or password you had to put in when you set 98 up.  Is there a place in the cd to look for that code?  Thanks

if you are asking about the cd-key it is only written on the booklet that your cd comes with. you can not find it on the cd..

It has been known for people to use somebody else's number but this is NOT legal.  You should contact Microsoft and ask them to sell you a new licence. Legally, you should not install the same software on more than one computer unless you have an extra licence.

You can find lost CD keys in the the registry. So if you have Windows 98 loaded on another computer, look there.  Follow the instructions in the link below.

W98 can be installed without this number:

I myself done it a few times, its a safe way.

But watch out about licenses, installing on two PCs with
one licenses only is not legal!!!

You do not need to modify registry. Run REGEDIT and navigate to:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion]
and check keys "ProductId"="...
and "ProductKey"="...
This last one should be called CDKEY. Both were printed on your original box.

Possibly kehleyr's company has been audited and he has been sent to jail for software licence infringements and piracy :-)
