Do you want this machine to have the ability to boot multiple OS's? Is a version of Windows already installed on the machine? I do know there is an issue with installing 95, 98, or Me. You'll always want to install Windows before anything else.
Are you allowing the 8.0 install to remove all partitions?

I had to attempt to reinstall 8.0 on a machine that had it working before. Looks like i installed too much junk and the x server crashed badly amongst other things.
Here's the problem.
I get to the part where the partitions are to be formated and the installation crashes after it comes to the end of formating the last partition.
Basically nothing will install, i have tried a few different os's.
I might have messed up my disk by fdisking it with a win 95 disk and formating, or my mbr is messed up.
Any ideas ?
