Clean installation

I am having trouble with a HDD and need to replace it. I have another HDD that I have deleted the partitions and created a new single DOS partition and Primary DOS partition, but when I come to format the drive I get 'Bad command or file name' I have done it this was as I only have the upgrade XP Home disc, so I am trying to load 98SE first. I have tried to extract the cab file but it can't find it!! Any help would be appreciated.
