Why doesn't Win98 Install? It keeps getting stuck in the middle!

I can't install Win98! It says "preparing files for installing windows"
(or something like that) in the GUI, reaches 100%, and crashs the machine.
What do I do?

One of two things:

  1. no floppy drive (booting from CD is fine, as long as CD emulates floppy)
  2. "Virus Warning" in the CMOS is "Enabled" set it to "Disabled".
