    I tried installing my Windows XP Upgrade and of course I'm being asked for a full version disk of any version of Windows. I eject the XP disk and put in the Win 98 disk. It asks me to hit enter to continue but nothing happens when I hit enter.

    How do I install Windows when all I have is a full version of Win 98 and an XP upgrade?

    Also, I've seen several threads on this subject. When you do a forums search what other suggestions/work-arounds do they suggest?

    The recommended method seems to be here:
