When you have a working boot disk (Win98?) at the A:\> prompt type DIR C:
If you see a list of directories/folders your hard drive is probably OK. If it says "Can not find specified path" or similar then your hard drive may have died.
If you do see directories, at the A:\> prompt type SYS C:
This re-writes system files to the C: drive and may enable you to boot again.
