Check that the cable is not loose on the cdrom drive.
The ms-dos compatibility mode is not an option here as the ms-dos drivers do not seem to load either.
If the CD is a secondary-master / slave ... check the BIOS of the machine has an entry for the controller location of the CDROM ie secondary-slave has an entry for CD-ROM or AUTO.
It sounds like the problem is your cd does not load, but you mentioned your CD does not boot. Are you trying to boot from a CD.

They are a lot of BIOS that cannot boot the system from the CD-ROM so that I have to check your BIOS first.  If your BIOS can support the CD-ROM boot.  I would like you to check the CD-ROM's cable. After checking the cable, you have to go to BIOS and set the BIOS in the IDE items to be AUTO (Usually, this item is in the first selections of BIOS menu, named as General Information or Setting.).  Then, you have to find the items "Bootable Device" in BIOS and set it to CD-ROM.  Now, try to boot the Windows98's CD-ROM again.  However, if you system does not support the bootable CD-ROM, you can bypass the installation by following this instruction.  First, you have to install the MS-DOS (with Himem.sys and EMM386.exe) and your CD-ROM driver in your system.  Then, boot your system.  After your system is ready, please insert the Win98 CD-ROM.  Go to the CD-ROM Drive, and go to subdirectory "<CD-ROM Drive>:\win98\"  Type "Setup" and then Enter.  The win98 will be installed to your computer.
