I need to totally clean my hard drive and reinstall Windows 98 as it has become corrupted. Can somebody tell me how to totally reformat the hard drive and reinstall from CD-ROM.

start pc with Windows CD in drive. Make a boot floppy or download one. click here at the command prompt type "format c:" without the quotes. After format is complete change into cdrom drive (e.g. e:) and type "setup" without the quotes.

Try and access the cdrom drive before formatting to check the boot disk contains the correct cdrom drivers for your cdrom drive. When the boot floppy is booting keep an eye on the screen for something like "your cdrom drive is x" where x will be your drive letter...

When does the commend prompt appear? Is it when I run the boot disk?
