WINDOWS 98 SE FAILS TO LOAD

Windows98 SE is failing to load on my Pentium 3 pc. The bootup process only goes as far as to the Windows opening screen, then the machine restarts all over again, and again........forever!
I then tried to start the machine using a startup floppy. At the A:\ prompt I changed to C:\ and attempted starting Windows in its directory by typing WINDOWS\WIN at the C:\ prompt and hitting ENTER. The screen then went blue and displayed the following message:
" VFAT Devise Initialisation failed.
A devise or resource required by VFAT is
not present or is unavailable. VFAT cannot
continue loading. System halted. "
May I know what problem this message points to and what to do to fix it? Thanks in advance.
