98se will install from the CD if you go into your BIOS and select CD drive as first drive. So format your new hard drive then install from the CD.

Boot PC and you will be on the bios page, enter and format drive, and as above select CD drive as first bootable disk, power down, insert 98se into drive and re-boot at the prompt type the word: SETUP, without the , and off you jolly well go. :o)
