windows 98 on a dell latitude. Boot disk not working

Hello all I am trying to install windows 98 on a Dell Latitude but with the boot sequence set to the floppy then the cdrom then the harddrive it doesn't recognize the boot disk and I get the no bootable devices error. The boot disk is good I tested it on another machine by booting to the disk before and after I tried it (several times) on the Dell. The cd is bootable but I can't run the setup command after I used fdisk. Would appreaciate any help with this matter.
