    DVD problems

    Which software do you have for burning? Win98 usually doesn't have problems installing DVD burning programmes. It should find your dvd burner automatically. Did you look in "device manager" to see what CDROMS are shown? You will have to emable DMA to burn anything but that is found in the CDROM properties.
    We need more info to help past this point.
