What about using a Windows 98 Boot Disk....pop it in the floppy and boot to that.
Check out

once the pc is booted to the floppy, there is a risky way to do it, but it works like a champ. Basically you use debug to overwrite the MFT

To reinstall Ubuntu, put the Install CD in your CD drive and reboot. If it does not boot from CD, you might have to change the boot order in your BIOS so that CD boots before the Hard Drive.

Can you help with this problem?
