First choice...Do you want to while away a couple hours chipping away at a typically tough problem...with a complication... OR Would a complete reinstallation be the better route?
Do you have all that you'll need to do the format and installation.
The version of windows you install must match your product key...so, if the cd you have came with your machine, that'll work.
The drivers for your hardware and other devices. Should be on cd either as part of a recovery set, or as third party cds. This would include software for the motherboard. If you are using a recovery set and have all the disks, that'll work.
Installation cd's for all the programs you have installed since acquiring the machine or at least those that you will want to use. If you have those, that'll work
If you have all that and don't mind losing what's on the hard drive now. Format and reinstall Windows.
Let me know what you think...

I like a challenge...and I like to "bring 'em back alive". Gimme a bit to research the commands.

I hope you have a floppy drive????
Download this Win98SE OEM Startup Disk and save it to your desktop. Double click on the downloaded file and put a floppy disk in the drive when prompted to do so. to create the Startup Disk.
Put the diskette you just created into the drive on the dead machine and power it on. It should boot to a DOS options screen...press Shift + F5 for command prompt (A:\)
When you get to the A:\ prompt, let me know.
