You need to have a windows 98 boot floppy disk. If you can get access to a win 98 computer, you can create one easily enough.

You can get a WIN98 Boot Disk (also known as a WIN98 Start Up Disk) at http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

If you just need DOS, tap F8 as you boot and select the prompt from the Boot Menu. You can also create a boot disk from "Add/Remove programs" and select Create a Emergancy startup disk".
