use the win 98 boot disk
start the machine with the disk in
it will go on to an A:\ prompt
type "format C: /s" (exactly with spaces but no quotation marks). press enter and you should get a warning about deleting all data etc. carry on.
good luck

My first impression is none of them. Just checking the clock to see how long you've been waiting.

Woodchip's the man for 98.

You don't even need the Dos start up disk.

Start the pc in dos mode and just type FORMAT C: /S

That's it.
