Question

I tried to install Win 98 on my computer last night. It worked fine until I hooked up my second hard drive. I unhooked it and it still has problems. Explorer keeps having an invaild page fault error as soon as it boots up. I was thinking that if I reformatted the drive and went back to Win 95 and then upgraded again, it might fix it. The only thing is, is that I have a boot up disk , but I don't know the steps from there to reformat the disk. It keeps saying that it doesn't have the correct parameters. Thanks so much, and any help or ideas would be great!
