It sounds like you may have done a format c:/s which formats the drive and installs the system files. Booting from that gives a momentary 98 splash screen and then returns you to the c:\> prompt.

So, what did you do with it between the last time it worked OK and the first time it didn't?

If you do need to reinstall 98 you'll need the installation cd.

Now that's what I call a sticky situation

At the c:\> prompt type dir/p and enter. That'll scroll through the entries on the root drive page by page. If you see a windows directory then possibly it can be fixed.

Otherwise I don't keep track of download sites for 98. Others may post in with that information. But you can get a 98 cd fairly cheap on ebay. You'd probably want an OEM full version. Or if you can't find one I can probably burn a copy and send it to you.

Now that's what I call a sticky situation
