    have u got a win98 bootdisk, boot using that and delete all partitions using fdisk, and create a new partition. then reboot to cd with 2k setup. also have u got it set to master?

    you could try clearing the cmos that might fix any bios problems and put them back to default.

    To clear the cmos remove the battery for a little while (about a minute) or chnage the clear cmos jumper to the clear position, wait a few seconds, then put it back to the normal position. then turn on teh computer and enter setup.
