    OK, I've got a DOS disk running on it that has fdisk.

    If I run fdisk /mbr, where will it put the mbr? I think part of the problem is that I don't have an active partition, in addition to grub not being in the boot sector. I think.

    If you run "fdisk /mbr" from the Win98 it will take care of all that for you.
