I have several gigabytes of data that can't lose. Is there anyway to recover this system or at least get the data out so i cant reinstall win98?

thanks for the reply. I kept all the cables as they were before i tried to add a second internal harddrive, which worked before.
I've attached 2 pics just in case i did something wrong. the first one is just the error message and the second one is my harddrive. I've already taken the second harddrive out. Now it's just the original drive and the floppy drive.
Okay, can you access the harddrive using the floppy? (just boot with it and try "dir C:\")
yes I do have the windows 98 SE floppy disk and the CD as well. The problem is I'm not really familiar with 98 so I dont really know what to do.
I've loaded it and it has the option to load with or without CD support. And I dont know what to do afterwards.
alright so when i load the boot disk, i got a black screen with
and then i type in "dir C:\"
and it gives me an error message "Invalid media type reading C"
ya, the problem is on my old computer (Windows 98 SE). I'm at my regular home computer at the moment. It's windows XP sp2.
well there's a slight problem with that. I have an hp pavilion so the case is pretty small. I dont have an extra slot to add another drive on my xp machine.

i'm not sure. I already have 4 drives in the case right now (cd, dvd, floppy, and harddrive). And last time, i had to open it up to replace the power supply and I was barely able to close it. lol
