When I turn on the computer, it opens to the ms dos screen instead of the windows 98 startup, what gives?

You must have in the past started your PC in ms dos and forgot to change it back to shutdown.

Edit: Just disregard my post. Must have had too many beers in my head.

Have you tried to invoke the Startup Menu?
Hit F8 (though I've heard that F5 does it, too) after the POST to see if it
opens - then select Normal startup or Safe mode

Type
win /w:x from the command line then reboot
That should take care of it
In the beginning there was the command line.
