It seems to be intact. When you looked at the directory of C: did you see a folder named win98, or cabs? If not, Enter

cd C:\windows\options

then Enter

dir /p and look for a folder named cabs. If it's there go

cd cabs

then

dir /p

If it has about 100 files including many .cab files it will be the installation files and you can just type in

setup

to start the reinstallation of windows. It should keep your programs and settings when done this way.

You might want to check that you don't have any spyware or other stuff that might have corrupted any files. And BTW, congratulations.

There may be a setting in BIOS about the type of floppy drive. Don't know what kind of BIOS you have so I can't tell you much more than that. Also you might need to install some drivers for other stuff, but reinstalling from the mfrs. set up should have installed them.
