Question Question on Grub language

I made the mistake of buying a rebuilt hard drive to save money. I had to Fdisk it and when I got done and rebooted with the Windows 98 floppy (this is on an old puter), it took me to grub>
I know, absolutely, nothing about Linux.
I am trying to install windows and it looks like they left Red Hat on the boot sector?

I tried install and nothing, I tried setup and nothing, so PLEASE,
does anyone know what I do to get the cd installed on the hard drive?

Boot with the Win floppy, then type
fdisk /mbr
That should erase the MBR and windows should install ok.

Thanks, will try that tomorrow.
I wouldn't even bother with that puter, but I use it for backup when I'm working on this one.
