Reboot. while the computer is counting up memory, tap (once every second) the F8 key at the top of your keyboard.
You should get a startup menu....choose step by step confirmation (choice 5, I think--been a long time since I saw a windows 98 machine).
Keep saying YES (Y) until it fails. Report at what step it fails

Simply run setup from the window98 cd, and install to the same directory where windows currently is installed (default is c:\windows)

Let's back up.... I don't think I made myself clear.
First, let's get this out of the way. Do you know if your computer will boot to CD?
This setting is found in BIOS, and works with all modern atapi ide drives.
If so, that will make things much easier

If not do the other.
Get yourself a windows 98 boot disk and boot to an a:\> prompt.
if dos asks you if you want to use large disk support say yes.
When you get to the menu, choose 2) follow the sequence to make your first partition active.
Reboot without floppy.
Work? If no, reboot with floppy
At a:\ prompt, type
follow prompts, reboot.
These are non-destructive options (you are not formatting or repartitioning.)
