with no cd your going to be pretty limited. You'll need someone with a way to hook a laptop drive into a normal pc and format that drive and copy the files over needed to load win98

Pull out the laptops hard drive, get an adapter and put it into a full size machine as a secondary drive. Then format the drive fat32 and copy the win98 folder off the cd to the hard drive. Put the drive back into the laptop and boot from a windows disk. Navigate into the win98 folder and run setup.exe (or was it install.exe I don't really remember) Thats it then it will install just like normal.
