Hi,

It sounds like you've successfully formatted your hard drive, and that you ran a sys command to transfer the files necessary to boot over to your C: drive (thus eliminating the need for a boot disk, just to access the C drive).

Now all you need to do is boot with your Windows 98 boot disk. Then choose "Start Windows 98 with CD-ROM Support" when prompted. Once that finishes loading, pop your Windows 98 CD into your CD-ROM drive, and run the setup.

You should be home-free from there.
