http://www.msi.com.tw/support/bios/oldbios.htm Follow this link to Micro-Star's bios upgrade page. Your board is the 51 series but you'll have to look on the board to get the exact model number.
Try renaming the PTCVD file. It's in your Windows\System folder, then delete any reference to it in the Registry. Reboot
The drivers for IDE controllers will be on the Win98 CD
