How do I re-install Windows 98?

Loading silly game from cereal packet CD has corrupted my Windows 98 SE so badly it won't load even in Safe Mode. Just freezes at start-up with wallpaper showing but no icons. How do I re-load Windows 98 from the CD? Will doing this over-write just old Windows systems files and leave other files intact? Or must I re-format drive and lose everything not backed-up?
