RE : Install WIn98 SE

I had a virus and then it deleted some windows files and now I cannot get windows up again.
I rebooted from the floppy and now want to reinstall windows 98SE.
Please can you tell me how to go about this install.
I look forward to hearing from you.

This may or may not work, but I would attempt to install windows on top of windows from the cab files on the hard disků
Boot to the DOS floppy
A:\>cd windows\options\cabs
A:\windows\options\cabs>setup /ie
The /ie flag tells windows not to make a startup floppy
After it gets going the Windows setup will probably find that windows has already been installed in
and will try to get you to install it in
Edit that back to
And ignore the resulting warning
