Copy the files under \win98 of the Cd to the hd. Copy all the files inside that dir, but don't copy the subfolders (they're not needed, afaik) to C:\Win98, then whenever Windows 98 asks for the CD browse to that dir and no more CD!

Some Windows 98 installations (98SE, OSR2) copy some of these files under C:\windows\options\cabs so make sure if that dir exists, if it does copy the files from \win98 from the CD there. Leave out the subfolders from the CD.

If you already have 98 installed, it doesn't matter. You can copy the files to the folders I mentioned with Windows Explorer. If you have not installed 98, make sure you copy the files to the HD folder \win98 and then run the win98 setup from there. If you install from HD, it will NEVER ask for the 98 cd. Have your CD-key on hand since you gonna need it.
