Storm,

Boot the system into safemode by either holding the CTRL key down during a restart ot by tapping the F8 key right after the memory post but just before you see "Starting Windows..."

Now go into device manager and scroll down to the IDE controllers area. Highlight each device in there and click remove.

Now restart the system. As long as there's nothing wrong with the IDE bus, or you haven't disabled it in the Bios\CMOS setup, windows will reload it.

If it is an ALI chipset motherboard, you may have to go to www.ali.com.tw and download an IDE driver.  Windows 98 has a prob with some ALI chipsets.  Nothing on my mothrboards secondary IDE was recognized until I downloaded the driver.
