Re: 98 loading error message
When you format something you WILL lose all of the data that was there. I would also recomend upgradeing to XP, 2000, or NT. You may need to reinstall the OS. If you need instructions ask me and I can help.

You could try running sfc scannow. See link here. And very helpful site for troubleshooting windows 98 here and here.
I couldn't tell you about downloading it, but I'd scan any download very carefully, and question whether you could trust an install done from such files to be secure. I'd try to find an original cd as they should be a dime a dozen these days... I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
This problem may occur if the file that is described in the error message is corrupted. The following files are checked for integrity when Microsoft Windows XP starts:
All driver files (except those that are loaded by the system loader to start. the computer)
All dynamic-link libraries (DLLs), including User, Graphics Device Interface (GDI), Shell, Kernel, Ntdll, Crtdll, and others.
This problem may occur if you install an inappropriate driver for your hardware. For example, you receive one of the error messages that are described in the "Summary" section if you install a MIPS driver on an X86-based computer.
This problem may occur if an Iomega Zip drive is on the same integrated device electronics (IDE) cable as the hard disk drive.
To resolve this problem, obtain a new copy of the corrupted file or reinstall Windows XP. If you continue to receive any one of the error messages that are described in the "Summary" section after you reinstall Windows XP, a hardware problem or a network problem may exist.
This error message may be displayed in many different formats, including an error message that is displayed on a blue screen or an error message that is displayed in a dialog box. The type of format that the error message is displayed in depends on how much of the operating system was loaded when the corrupted file was detected.
Disable the SCSI1HLP.VxD using the Microsoft Configuration Utility:

Click Start, click Run, and then type msconfig in the Open box.
On the Static VxDs tab, click to clear the Scsi1hlp.vxd check box, click OK, and then follow the instructions to restart your computer.
NOTE: By following the steps below, any device that uses the Scsi1hlp.vxd file may not function properly or you may not be able to restart your computer. Some SCSI devices and some ATAPI devices use this file. If you are not sure if your hardware uses this file, check with your hardware manufacturer before you proceed.
Rename the Scsi1hlp.vxd file in the Windows\System\Iosubsys folder:
Restart your computer, press and hold down the CTRL key, and then choose Safe Mode from the Startup menu.
Click Start, point to Find, and then click Files or Folders.
In the Named box, type scsi1hlp.vxd, and then click Find Now.

This is a little difficult but it can B done :) Firstly I dunno if ya need to re-format ya drive? perhaps first ya could try to "Repair" of Win98? If that doesn't work,then, perhaps ya may have to re-format. If the Win98 is on a SEPARATE drive or Partition this also makes a difference....
Basically ... repair/re-install win98, then do a repair of ya Boot menu for XP, as Win98 sets up an incorrect Boot up for XP, and thus must be "Fixed" so XP will boot & show a Dual boot menu..
here are some links to help you step by step...
