packard bell doesn't make laptops.
they did a long, long time ago but they don't anymore.

here's a link for a 98 bootdisk which will do what you want

You might just need to make your laptop boot from your CDROM drive first rather then floppy.

What's the model number of the notebook?
It's quite possible that a standard WIN98 boot disk will work.  You can get the cd-rom drivers from driverzone.com
