    Hi. I just bought Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac and am trying to install some Win98SE discs I just bought off eBay (the listing said categorically they were full install discs) so that I can play some old games I have lying around. I open Parallels, chick on "Install Windows or another OS from DVD or image file" to reach the "New Installation" window. I put one of the two discs (pictured below) in my Mac's DVD RW drive and wait for the disc to show up in the "Install from" menu, but it never shows up. I do this with the other disc; same story. I try "Continue without disc" and in the "Please select your operating system:" menu choose "More Windows >> Windows 98." This eventually takes me to a DOS-looking command line screen which eventually prompts me to install Windows installation discs. I try the two discs I got AGAIN and neither is recogized. What am I doing wrong?
