What OS are you wanting to Install?? If XP insert the XP CD then re boot and when prompted "Press any Key to Boot from CD" then follow the wizard and it will re format HDD and auto install XP.

If you mean you are having trouble with a spare computer and need to correct a badly damaged Windows 98, then it looks like you will have to clean everything off the drive (Format) and install from scratch.

This is something that is straight forward, but needs planning first......... There is plenty of help available here if you confirm that this is what you want to do.

to remove win 98 you need a boot floppy if you dont have one click here insert a floppy then double click the file you downloaded

set your floppy drive to first bootable device in the bios insert boot disk boot machine
at the a prompt type format then leave a space then type C:\ so should look like this

A:\format c:\ then hit enter you will get a warning formating will erase all data would you like to continue y will format

Warning Before formating make sure you have all disks o/s drivers progs required etc make sure you Back up any thing you want docs etc before formating

If windows boots, there is one option that may help to find lost files in the operating system. Go to your start button and then to "run". Type in the following " SFC" (no inverted coma's) then
click on ok. This will find files that have been altered,corrupt etc.

I am no expert but this once helped me.
