use FDISK /MBR to remove the master boot record.  Windows will restore the master boot record automatically.  Then try to redo your partitions.

Welcome.
Please refrain from posting an answer and place your responses as a comment.  This allows the questioner to chose a comment he feels is the correct answer.  This leaves the question open for other experts to evaluate. besides your proposed answer is wrong,the fdisk command MBR does not remove the master boot record....

I've had this happen several times ,
try fdisk again and this time delete all the lodigal drives and extended partition ,then primary partition and instead of rebooting to make changes take effect ,go ahead and make your new partition/partitions and then reboot and see if this works
use the fdisk on the win98 startup disk
