If you have another computer, you can download a Windows 98 boot disk from www.bootdisk.com.  Assuming your Bios is setup to read from A drive (Floppy) first, insert the boot disk in your Floppy drive.  Boot up with the CD ROM option. Find out where your the boot disk put the CD ROM drive. (It may not be I). Go to that drive and type Setup.

Is I: the drive letter for the CD? Verify with the command dir. See if you see Setup.exe. It should have returned an error message if it couldn't find the file, such as 'File not found'. Try booting from the Win98 CD. Check the BIOS to verify that the CD is in the boot sequence.
