The newest operating system appropriate for the 4131 is Windows 98. The

I suppose you don't have the CD-Rom base for your Armada?
If its the case, you should:
Have a W98 boot floppy
Boot it, partition and format the HD.
have a parallel or serial transfer cable
Use a DOS utility such as FX20 to transfer the contents of the W98 cdrom
to a directory on the laptop HD from another PC.
Then run the windows setup from that dir on the laptop.
Thats what I did to install the Armada 4120 I'm typing on now!
