The disk she gave you, is it a windows disk or a Dell disk?
Where are you downloading the startup disk from? Best one to use is the ME bootdisk from
www.bootdisk.com

What kind of system is this? Make & model would help

I always install Windows 98 from the hard drive.
Need to know what kind of system we are dealing with here first.
Also what cd's you have and how they are labeled.
In the beginning there was the command line.
