Could try hanging it off another computer to see if that one can see it, and if so get your stuff off it in the process.

Do you have a Startup disk? If not, download this Win98SE OEM diskette. Once downloaded, double click the file and put a floppy when prompted to do so. This will create a startup disk.
Put the startup disk in the bad machine and power it on. When you get to the options screen, press Shift + F5 to get a command prompt. Once at the command prompt (A:\) type fdisk /mbr (note the space after fdisk) and press "Enter". This will rebuild the boot sector and, hopefully, get you running. If this works, I would advise backing your important data to removable media or another hard drive because, as Neil Jones pointed out, your HDD could very well be going bad.
