It does go well with any system. It just doesn't seem to FIT YOU!

Any DOS or Window$ system can make you a boot floppy with fdisk on it. Or you can just run the Window$ install program and it will erase the partitions for you.
Win98 has a special Emergency Boot / Recovery Disk (EBD / ERD). It has lots of tools, like CD support, so I suggest you get one.

(Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Program$
Then select 'Startup Disk' and 'Make Startup Disk').

Too bad you gave up Linux!
