You do have a couple of options. firstly check and double check that you do not have a floppy disk in your PC at boot, if you have remove it.

secondly you are able to restore if you insert the origional win98 cd rom and reboot the pc.( you may need to alter the settings within the bios.
Bios
you are looking to change the boot order so that the CD rom is looked at before the hard disk.
a good order would be floppy disk cd rom then HDD.

hopefully the pc will boot to the win98 cd rom, (from memory you are given the option to repair your installation).
If you do decide to repair the operating system will reinstall from scratch, meaning that you will need to reinstall applications previously installed.

importantly user data will remain, only the operating system will be altered.

you can find more information about this from the following link.

What is NTLDR error sir?


NTLDR (abbreviation of NT Loader) is the boot loader for all releases of Microsoft's Windows NT operating system up to and including Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. NTLDR is typically run from the primary hard disk drive, but it can also run from portable storage devices such as a CD-ROM, USB flash drive, or floppy disk. NTLDR can also load a non NT-based operating system given the appropriate boot sector in a file.
NTLDR requires, at the minimum, the following two files to be on the system volume:
  • NTLDR, which contains the main Boot loader itself
  • boot.ini, which contains configuration options for a boot menu.

This error means that NTLDR is missing somehow from your computer,hard disk problem,virus.etc
You can go to that page and follow the instructions exacty as he says and your problem will gone:)

For NTLDR missing error you need repair your windows .
For that you need recovery disk or bootable winxp disk.
Then boot it with disk.
Enter in bios and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom then put disk in it then follow the procedure to repair it.

What is NTLDR


NT Loader (NTLDR) is a small piece of software loaded from the boot sector of your primary hard drive that helps your operating system start.

If you have multiple operating systems installed and properly configured, NTLDR will show a boot menu when your PC starts, allowing you to choose which operating system to start.


Thanks for using FIxya

Ntldr


First check your bios & make sure it see's your hard drive & it's setup correctly. If it is there could can be other reasons for the missing NTLDR.
Suggest you take you Windows CD and boot to it. If your CD does not boot. Re-start the PC & start pressing the F8 key every two seconds. This will bring up a boot menue. Choose your cdrom drive.
Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. Copy these two files to you Hd. copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
Replace the drive letter listed above for your cdrom's drive letter.
Once copy has been complete re-boot your Pc.
If you still get missing NTLDR. Do a complete reinstall of windows. Your personal data should stay intact.
Please post back if this has not fixed missing NTLDR, there are more fix's that can be applied. I only listed the most common.
