    Call up Microsoft and give them your license number. They may be able to work something out.

    I'm guessing your warranty is out date. Last I heard MS charges 19.95 for replacement disks.

    my warentee has been voide by compaq when i first got my computer serviced... LOL

    (darn mid 90's computer viruses and the bad softwear i had... though the corperate softwear i got somehow worked well untill i gave the computer away formatted...)

    Now does Microsoft even have Win 98 disks.... cause i was looking at HP... (owns compaq now..) and they dont sell replacement restore disks for anything under XP now....

    EBay, or a cracked copy from a friend. Good luck......
    Why you want to run 9 year old software, that was 8 years outdated when it was first released, anyway? 1986 OS's kind of suck.

    The Call # on the software, reads 1998,, but it was coded/seeded in 1996,, even then, it is built as an emulator to a 1984 operating system. In tech terms, you are rubbing blunt sticks for fire.......
    I you got a PC,, go SUSE Linux,,,
    If you got a Mac, You are set.... don't bother worrying.
