What kind of CD-ROM?

Did it come with your computer? Then you should have also received the drivers for the CD-ROM on a floppy disk.

Or, when you reinstall Windows 98, you may find that the drivers exist on the Windows 98 CD-ROM.

To check CiscoKids suggestion: goto Start=>Settings=>Control Panel=>Device Manager. Click on CDROM, check out location, date and version of the driver. You even might make a copy of the driver before reformatting the HDD.

OR ... are you trying to get the computer to boot and be able to use the cd-rom ?? if this is the case, just go to the control panel and "Add/Remove Programs" icon. Click on the Startup Disk tab and then the button Create Startup Disk and it will make a disk that has drivers on it to start the computer with cd-rom support.
Hope this helps ...

Goto www.bootdisk.com and download the bootdisk for Win98SE or Win98 and that includes all the drivers on the bootup disk to activate 99% of cd rom drives. The cd drive letter will be set to R or S NOT D
