Win98 will not boot Linux install CD
I'm a newbie trying to install Linux on a Dell Inspirion 7000 with Win98. Starting with a clean system. I just partitioned the HD C,D,E and formated all three. Installed Window98 on C:. Now I am trying to boot the FC3 DVD that came with "Red Hat Fedora Linux 3 Bible" by Christopher Negus. Each boot Windows ignores the Fedora CD and loads Windows from the hard-drive. I can read the Fedora CD with no problem. I downloaded Koppix 3.9 and created a CD, still each boot Windows ignores the CD and loads Windows. The Koppix CD has only Knoppix_3_9.iso (712Meg). ISO is not a known file extention in Windows. Using a floppy to assist in the boot then going to F: (CD-ROM) I get "bad command file". With the Windows start-up disk I get something like "not a system file"
Can someone tell me how to get Windows98 to cooperate in it's demise?
