    if you have the 98 cd, boot from it. you may have to enter the bios and set the cd rom as the first boot device. install 98 from the cd. at no time attempt to format or allow it to be done. if you dont format and just reinstall your drivers, programs, and files will still be on the system. this should fix the directory and any other problems you may have.
