    "new" used computer


    I just purchased a used computer and it's running Linux. I would like to load Windows 98. I am unable to change the boot sequence to start with Windows 98 disk. Linux doesn't recognize it when I go to CD Rom within the Linux program. What to do?

    You need to change the boot order in the bios. You could disconnect the harddrive, so it doesn't start, but now you don't have anything to install windows on.

    I went into BIOS and on the boot sequence I went F1-it told me my options. I wanted to make the CD ROM as #1 on the sequence but it wouldn't accept any change. Is there something special I have to do?
