    Not sure I understand everything you're saying, but your computer should be able to auto detect the hard drive, unless it's really old. If not, then all that info depends on what make and type of hard drive you have. You can probably get it from the manufacturer's site.

    This has nothing to do with your hard drive settings. Windows 98 was not able to find drivers for your hardware, very common when installing it on newer machines.

    Go to www.belarc.com/free_download.html and download Belarc Advisor (free.) Install and run it. It will tell you exactly what hardware your computer has in it. Then you'll have to find Win98 drivers for the hardware on the Internet. Google is your friend, also driverguide.com. Good luck.
