change from xp to win98

I have picked up a computer that someone has installed xp on. I would like to format it and install win98 but i haven't been able to. Any suggestions?

All you should need is a Win98 boot disk and the Win98 install cd. What specifically are you having trouble with? And forgive my asking but WHY would you want to revert to 98?

Itís probably because itís formatted in NTFS which windows 98 cannot recognize. You need to reformat it with a boot disk that can recognize NTFS. If you have a widows 2000 or XP disk you can begin the process of installation of the OS then when it asks you to format it select to formant it in FAT 32. once its done formatting stop the installation and boot with the windows 98 diskette.
