Computer help needed!

Does anyone know how to install Windows 98 from the MS-DOS prompt? Every time I turn my computer on, it says a file is missing so I had to re-install Windows. Only problem is, I don't know what to type in the C prompt to start the installation. I've got the Windows CD in the CD-ROM as well as a start-up disk.

Even if someone can direct me to a page that tells you how to do it. I haven't been able to find any.
