Angry Windows 98 OS Installation

I am working on a system that requires help. Here is the situation.
I have a machine that initially had win 98. I then upgraded the system to win 2000. Since things were not working, i used "kill disk" to format the drive.
I then inserted the windows 98 start up disk and now i get a message "OS load in progress" and it just hangs there. nothing happens. what do i do to have windows 98 back on my system?
