How to Format and Re-install Windows 98 SE

Computer was found to be full of viruses. Files have been deleted in error and can't connect to internet. Windows files are missing and programs will not run. I want to format the computer and re-install Windows. I have a Windows 98 CD and startup floppy and all the required drivers.
I have managed to successfully re-format Windows XP but doesn't seem the same.
Also when I changed the BIOS to boot from CD i got a fail message.

Make sure you have no peripherals connected before starting. Make floppy first boot device. Boot with startup disk in floppy drive and when asked accept 'with cd-rom support' when floppy finishes loading put cd in drive note the drive letter assigned and type D:\setup (where D is your drive letter) and away you go
