After hdd crash I installed new hdd and tried to re-install os (win 98) but computer doesn't seem to recognise new hdd. Fdisk produces message "no fixed disk detected" what can I do?

Some thoughts

have you connected the ide cable the right way round?
have you connected the cable to ide 1?
Is the new hdd set as a master?
Have you connected the power cable to the new drive?
If its correctly installed it may just be faulty.
