I/O Error

I am working on a friends computer and had to format her hard drive. She was previously running Win98 and wants it reinstalled on the formatted hard drive. However, when I try and boot up with the Win98 bootup disk, I get a "Disk I/O error" I have tried a couple of disks and even tried making them with different versions of windows (WinXP, WinME, and Win98). Could it possibly be the floppy drive that's messed up?
