What do you mean when you say that you couldn't use the cd-rom drive. Do you mean you couldn't find the drive letter for the cd-rom or maybe it didn't load the driver for it.
On the other hand installing win98 using your cdrw is just fine. Two things to try is, if you have a cd for the motherboard run it and install all the drivers.The second item is to install directx. This will update many of the drivers and could solve a problem of an outdated driver freezing the computer.
If this fails it might just be a bad install and I would format the hard drive and start over. Remembering to use the motherboard cd and directx afterwards.
