Win 98 Huge Problem

my mothers pc - which i bought on eBay an installed windows 98 on myself, is now, months after buying it, giving up. its only 200mhz with about 65mb ram, but it does the trick for her at the moment.

turning it on yesterday, i am to find it gets stuck on the windows loading screen. it starts, loads away, beeps, then goes to the loading screen, where the computer begins to make whirry spiney noises (sound like they are coming from the cd drive, but theyre not)

the bar along the bottom keeps moving, but nothing happens. we left it for an hour or more, and still, nothing. safe mode made no difference, and running it step-by-step had it loading until it reached 'msmouse.vxd' then begining to make the weird noises again.

any ideas?
is there anywhere i can get a program to make a boot disk for win 98? im running xp here, and i cant reach windows on the other pc.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
