If there is no information on the hard drive you want keep, I would:

1. Run FDISK first. This is so you can use FAT32 that comes with Win98. Answer yes for large hard drive support (this enables FAT32). Delete any existing partitions and create the new one.

2. Format the hard drive

3. Copy the source files from your Win98 CD to a directory on the hard drive.

4. Install from that directory. This was as Win98 needs drivers, you won't have to keep getting out your CD each time.

If you need a Win98 boot floppy, I have one you can download from http://www.onecomputerguy.com/install/floppies.htm
