Upgrading Windows 98 to Windows 98SE

I have a HP Pavilion 6340 with Windows 98,5.59gb hard drive and a Intel Celeron.
I am trying to upgrade to Windows 98se so I can use Netgear to get on line but when I put in the Boot Disk I created at Boot Disk.com I get the message m:\boot 98se.exe is not a valid win32 application.
I would any imput as to what I am doing wrong.

Welcome

Which boot disk did you download?
How did you create it.

What process are you going through to boot from it.



Also, the Win98 SE CD should be bootable.

I downloaded Windows 98se OEM/Alt 1 from Bootdisk.com
Using Easy Creator CD program I copied it on to a CD in Data format and then
put into my HP Pavilion and clicked Open and got the message I reffered to.
I was told I could use the 98se boot disk as I do not have any disks for 98 or 98se and need to upgrade inorder to install Netgear.

If you want to upgrade to Win98 SE then you will need the Win98 SE CD.
