How do you boot Windows 98 with command interpreter?

How do you boot Windows 98 when you get a message go to your command interpreter? I get a C plus a carat symbol. I don't know how to get into the program for entering a command request.

If you're booting to the command interpreter and not into Windows directly, type win from the command line to boot Windows 98 itself. Odds are something may be wrong with your configuration if you're booting directly to the command line rather than into Windows, though.
