If the drive is erased then you will need the entire CD to install windows, not just the boot disk. You can order OEM CDs from eMachines for around $30. If that machine came with 98 you will be better off buying a copy of XP Home and installing it. No you cannot transfer an OEM version of Windows from one machine to another.
