Exclamation Need help!

I used Active @ Killdisk to erase my hard disk. I noticed the name it had was "unknown" after I erased it. I need help because when I boot my computer all it says is "99 99 99 99..." I am running a live linux disc right now. I am rather new at this so I need help on how to install a operating system on this hard drive.

P.S. excuse my n00bness.

You need to fdisk/reformat your harddrive. Go to www.bootdisk.com and download window 98 oem bootdisk. Delete the partition or whatever is there and make a new one then reboot and format.
