Need help reinstalling 98SE

I have an old computer that I need to reinstall 98SE on. I put the disc in the drive and restart it, but that apparently isn't the way to do it. Also can't find the command on the disc to do it. Anyone help?

The way I do it is to boot up to a floppy. Format the c: drive. Then run setup from the CD drive.

You probably need to change the boot sequence so that it boots off the CD drive first.

When you turn on the computer usually it will have a quick message saying "Press DEL for setup" or sometimes it is the F2 key. This takes you into the computers BIOS settings. Look for a section that says boot order and change it so the CD-ROM boots first. After installing you might have to come back here and change it back to the way it was.
