You can use a win98 startup disk to boot to dos, just don't use the /s switch behind the format command if your going to reinstall winme

I'm sure there is another way but that's the only one I know of

If you need a win98 bootdisk you can download one here
www.bootdisk.com

make sure you bios boot option's are set to boot from a first, then c. No reason a win98 boot disk won't get you to the command prompt, then select the drive you want to format and format it.

Hi Tnutall,
When you downloaded those bootdisks.....did you make sure to download them to your computer........then double click them and wait for the prompt to insert your floppy to be copied to?
