Default Recovery CD

Microsoft says I have to get a recovery CD from HP since
my windows 98 came from there but HP no longer has
recovery CD's for 98.

I let one of my husband's idiot friends do some work on my
computer and now I don't have backup ability and I'm
having problems with my computer so need to back up my
files.

I never had a recovery cd since I bought my computer
second hand. Anyone have any clue what I can do now?

Default Recovery CD

You can try to find a used copy on EBay; however, the chances are slim. If
you get non-HP version of W98, you will have to find the drivers you need.

ONCE I ACCIDENTALLY WIPED WINDOWS OUT OF MY COMPUTER, (I

HAD 95 AT THE TIME) I DIDN'T HAVE A DISK EITHER. I TOOK
IT TO THE REPAIR SHOP, THEY REINSTALLED IT FOR ME AND GAVE
ME THE DISK, PLUS GAVE MY SOME FREE MEMORY, OF COURSE IT
COST ME, BUT AT LEAST I HAD A DISK
