Go HERE and download the Win98SE OEM version bootdisk...save it to your desktop. Double-click the downloaded file and put a floppy in the the floppy drive when prompted to do so. This will create a startup disk that will help with the following procedure. Put the newly created startup disk in the "bad" machine and reboot.
When you get to the Options Screen, press Shift + F5 for command prompt...You will see the prompt A:\. Type C: and press "Enter" At the C:\ prompt, type Windows\command\scanreg /restore (note the space after scanreg) and press "Enter". If this works, you will be presented with a screen containing five "snapshots" of your system you can restore to. Use the arrow keys and choose one (go down three to be safe) and press "Enter"...type Y at the prompt and press "Enter". Reboot.
This will hopefully restore your operating system to an early enough configuration that it will start. Let me know how it goes...
