If you have anything you want to recover, safest way is to slave it & then recover the files, then run your virus programs.

If it dos'nt matter about the files, use your W98 CD to delete all the partitions & format.

Slave your HD to another HD/comp ( no need to bolt it in, just cable it & leave it outside the case ) You may have a choice of jumper settings on the master HD, such as master with slave or ms. Copy your stuff ( don't forget your emails & address book ) onto the host HD or other media.

You don't have to slave it, if you don't mind loosing everything.

"so I dont mind but I cant find my disk either?"

Sounds like you need help from a friend or download a Linux operating system, they are called distro's & there are dozens of types & sizes, all FREE.
