    I just got a computer from my friend and it was completely taken apart and had been formated.
    i hooked the pc back up and turned on it on. when it comes on it asks for a system disk, i then put in window 98 startup disk,then i select #1 to start the pc with cd- rom support.Then it tells me no dirves found and aborts the installation.It says my c: drive contains no FAT or FAT32 partitions.Then it comes up A:\> What do I do????

    at the a:\ prompt after booting with the startup disk type fdisk
    choose option 4 to display partition information, post back what it says. It's possible the drive wasn't reformated at all
