Check in BIOS that your HD is being recognized

Are you trying to put win98 on as a dual boot for a later windows os.

If you want win 98 as a dual boot, then win 98 will need to go on first before the later os.

Or, are you trying to put win 98 as a clean installation, with a separate partition for something else.
