Any ideas why W98 gets stuck at "Windows 98" banner screen during boot process 
after a download?
I was on the phone talking my brother through downloading a McAfee anti-virus 
update.  The download when fine.  Since I wasn't sure if the machine needed 
rebooting to activate the download, I had him restart the computer...and the 
boot process stops at the Windows 98 banner screen.

I had him boot to safe mode and run the AV and it didn't find anything.  
Running scandisk (thorough) as I write this.  Not sure if these are necessary, 
but had to try something.

Thanks
Kurt
