Default Unable to load 98se no cd-rom driver found

I have a toshiba laptop (portege 2010ct) I have fdisk with 98se. When I
restarted it it wouldn't read the driver for cd-rom. So I can't load OS. I
know the driver its looking for is on boot disk. I was able to format and it
said the diagnosis tools were loaded to drive D. Is there anbody who can tell
me how to get the system to load the driver. I also don't know my way around
the system except that drive A: comes up, so I would need step by step
instructions. Thanks for any help you can supply.

1. For general instructions on reinstallation see
http://home.satx.rr.com/badour/html/w98_restore.html

2. BUT TAKE WARNING that some laptops (especially
Toshibas) seem to require proprietorial drivers (i.e.
generic Win98 drivers may not work satisfactorily.)
Are these stored in a special folder on your hard drive?
If so, you must not use FDISK or else it will wipe the
old C: including setup files.

3. Each installation from CD requires a boot floppy.
Several different types may be downloaded free from
www.bootdisk.com. There may be a special Toshiba
web site that suits your needs better.

Many laptops did not have the capability to hot swap drives; therefore, the
OEMs provided restore CDs which were bootable. Did your laptop come with
such a CD? If so, go into the BIOS and make sure that the CDRom drive is
listed as the first boot device.

Go into the BIOS setup and see if you set the laptop to boot from the
CD drive(hold down the "Esc" key during bootup). Be sure to save any
changes when exiting. If this doesn't help or can't be done, please repost
with more information, including whether or not you can use the floppy
and CD drives simultaneously.
