I got a secondary, junk computer, to mess around with... And I had to delete all the junk off of it (the hard drive, in particular). So I had to format it. The problem is, it's unable to use a CD drive... So I formatted it in DOS, since it had no form of windows.
Now, when I turn it on, it comes up and says that there's nothing there, and "insert a boot disk" to continue... But, there's no command prompt, and I don't know what kind of boot disk I need.
If it IS a MS DOS boot disk I need, how do I go about making one? I can't even find the dos directory for the life of me!
Am I screwed since I can't hook up a CD Drive?

Formating the hard drive means you lost everything on the hard drive. If you have another computer make a boot floppy disk with it I.E. make startup disk with win98 and boot from the floppy drive.
