When you say you can boot off the CD, does that mean you are booting the Live CD with Puppy? or are you able to boot the installed version by using the Live CD? or do you know?
Yes I installed puppy seperately on its own partition, then i booted it from the hard drive. I could not boot windows 98 because i deleted the windows 98 partition because i dislike windows 98 and it was corrupt. after deleting the 98 partition my problem had been not being able to boot puppy from the hard drive because the flags were not set right. When i said booting from the CD i meant the live cd. With a few boots from the live cd i got my partitions straitend out andd the boot flags in the right places and everything works is there any way to make my puppy boot puppy by default or do i have to select lucid puppy every time i boot?

Not sure which version of Grub Puppy uses. If it's v1, type:

Code:
geany /boot/grub/menu.lst
in Console, edit, then save changes. If it's v2, it's a bit different. You'll need to remove the Windows boot script from /etc/grub.d folder, edit /etc/default/grub, then run update-grub in console to set the changes in grub.cfg.
