    i'm working on a presario 1200 laptop running windows 98se. it has problems
    and i want to restore it to the factory install. i boot off the recovery cd
    no problem but then it sits at the "quick restore setup" screen. also, when
    i try to run it from windows (the on-disk version), it appears to hang,
    although task manager doesn't report "not responding" and it shuts down
    immediately when i kill it with "end task". any idea what the problem is?
    also, the save/restore partition seems inordinately large - 2G of a 4G disk.
    i don't know what it is originally as this is not my computer. any help is
    greatly appreciated.
