Your options

You can call Microsoft for an activation key (and pay for the software you are trying to use),
You can format your hard drive and reinstall,
You can go buy a full version with key,
You can be illegal and get a pirate version or pirate key,
You can format your hard drive and install one of the many versions of Linux which are completely free and legal.

hi gralfus,

thanks for the options...i was going to reformat the hard drive but the system won't allow me to DOS to reformat.

i've entered pirated keys but still won't allow me to continue.

other suggestions will be much appreciated...

thanks for your help...

Change Bios boot order
Make a bootable disk on any Pc and include Fdisk
or try a win98cd bootable pc from cdrom, and you'll be able to install win 98
