    Can you boot from the CD Directly? Most windows 98se CDs can boot, and you can run setup from there.

    Also, have a boot disk? You can use fdisk, wipe the partition table, reboot, recreate the partition and reformat that way.. then reinstall. Unless you've got data you're trying to save

    Hope this helps..

    you will find commands like "format" and "fdisk" in C:\windows\command

    And you probably should take a tour in DOS commands..

    Quick and dirty:
    "cd c:\windows\command"
    "format c:"

    You had better know what you are doing!
