You should have a Win98 boot floppy from which you can boot. (If you haven't,
ask a friend to make one.) From DOS you can restore the MBR with the command:
  fdisk /mbr

When installing kernel and modules, choose `cdrom' and then `default'. You
shouldn't need to enter any directory there.

If you have more questions about installing or using Debian, please post them
to debian-user@lists.debian.org (which is dedicated to that purpose).
