I have a dell machine and it is using quantum harddisk.It was working OK and today when I started it is saying Boot disk error. Then I tried to Boot from A drive and is sucessful but when I try to go to C drive it is saying Invalid drive. When I try to recover the OS( windows 98) from CD, it is not even reading from the CD even after I set CDROM as primary start in Bios.
When I try to do FDISK from A drive it is saying No fixed disk installed. Is my hard disk spoiled or is it due to virus ? If it is harddisk failure, why it is not recognizing the CDROM ?

Please HELP....
