This hard drive is totally screwed up, how do I delete windows 98 from it and preserve the DOS ?
I guess this system runs better with win 95, because there arenumerous copies of win 95/98 overlaid on top of each other. So, I guess I'll reinstall the 95os and leave it at that.

c:\deltree c:\windows

Make sure this is the directory windows is in. All sub directories within this directory will be deleted. Honestly though, if you have a copy of DOS and have a boot disk to install your cdrom drivers after the DOS install, I would fdisk, format and reload starting with DOS or just install WIN95.

I am running windows98 and in an entry in the device manager under other devices I have a question mark, within this is an exclamation mark that refers to the PCI System Management Bus, can someone please let me know what is the purpose of the PCI Management Bus, and do the drivers needed refer to the motherboard, processor or what? the motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-7dx and processor Athlon 1ghz 266FSB.
