I only have several suggestions left.

Format again with another floppy, fdisk, create a non dos logical partition (I think, option 1), then format.

If it won't install, the only thing without having it here in front of me is to try to another W98 CD if possible and/or copy the CD to the hard drive.

Do you know what the details of the hardware is like brand and specifications etc?

it's a bit crappy cos it's ancient, its a pentium 166mhz with 32mb ram (bad i know but it worked before) as for the rest i dont know what it's got.

the bit it gets stuck at is at the end with about 6 things to set up...control panel. programs on the start menu , windows help, system configuration etc....it always gets stuck on programs on the start menu

Took out the cd-rom drive and it's managed to get past the bit it gets stuck at...it's updating system settings with the little drum at the moment....any ideas why the cd-rom drive being plugged in would stop things from working?
