Locked up in Safe Mode after using Aptiva Win98 CD

    A friend was trying to install Bell South's DSL on his Dell laptop. The
    last step called for him to put in the Win98 CD. He had left this in
    another state so we borrowed a friend's IBM Aptiva CD which supposedly
    had WIN98 on. The laptop went to Safe Mode and we have been unable to
    get it out of this mode.

    Any suggestions? We closed all applications that were open but this
    didn't help. We tried Add/Remve programs to take out the Aptiva Access
    program but couldn't do it in safe mode. Finally just deleted the
    folder but laptop still locked up in safe Mode.
