This started when the DOS scandisk said that it detected a long filename error. After it completed a bluescreen popped up saying that one drive was unequal or outdated or something, and that Windows would put everything into MS-DOS compatibility mode to protect against lockups.

Now my drives (different partitions of the same one) are stated to be in "MS-DOS compatibility mode file system", and the CD-ROM isn't recognized. If I boot with the win98 startup disk it sees the CD-ROM, but I can't get into Windows.

Problem fixed. Just played around with the registry and the data cables.
