At the C:\> prompt, type DIR /P & press ENTER...are directories & files listed?

Yeah, likely a DIR will only show COMMAND.COM. The previous owner owner probably did a FORMAT C:/S which would have formatted the drive and installed only the system files. Booting up after that gives the 98 splash screen for a second and then the prompt.
