I'm not sure about win98, but in win95 a win95 startup disk will have all you need, except for cdrom drivers. You get to the startup disk by going to control panel/ - add/remove programs. It has basically the same fdisk, format, etc., except the fdisk program will ask you if you want to use fat32 (at least in win95b) I usually format, sys the c: drive, then install cdrom drivers. Run setup from the cdrom, or copy the win95 directory to the hard drive and install from there.
