It must be done from an A: prompt,Floppy disk.
A: Forrmat C:

this is my first time doing it with 98, i've done it with XP but not this.
Then i presume you have a W98 cd .
Now you need a W98 system disk in order to fdisk and format and finally get cd support to install W98.
I can email you a w98 system disk and i won't include any porn content
But you decide.as some seem to have this problem here.
:D
