Windows 98 cd is bootable, so if the CD-rom is in, it should boot unless the cd-rom does not support it.
what the model number on the LM?

What I would do is this:
Get one of these
remove the drive from the dell--usually requires one screw removal.
Inert the drive into a desktop, then create a directory on it called OPTIONS. Copy the contents of the win98 directory from a windows cd to the drive.
Reinsert the drive into the laptop, boot with floppy.
At a: prompt, tyoe
windows will install from drive.
You can get those converters at radioshak for about $15 or less--or you can get an entire enclosure for about $30 at many pc hardware stores
