Format partitioned hard disk, install W98SE

By pmfturner ·
I have a friend?s PC on which is currently installed Windows 98, PII 440 chipset. I wish to format the hard drive and install Windows 98SE. However, I have the following issues :-

1. The hard disk appears to be partitioned into C and D drives (the CD drive is disk E). How do I eliminate this partitioning ?
2. The PC will not boot from the A (floppy) drive, and therefore I cannot start the PC with my boot disk.
3. Entering, at the C: prompt format c: /u /s does nothing ! What should I be keying in here to format the disk(s) once I do manage to boot from the boot disk ?

Many thanks
