Default Help!!! My Computer is Dead

I was surfing on the internet one day last week when I clicked something that I think Gave me a virus or something because it started acting funny immediately. It kept freezing and I kept rebooting until finally it came up with the O/S install. (like when you first start a computer and have to install the system) Anyway, I finally got that to work again but then had this great idea to install an additional hard drive. First I disconnected the old one and connected the new one and then installed windows 98. That seemed to work fine until I hooked both of the hard drives into the computer. Now, when I start up it says "no operating system found" if I use the startup disk I cant even run fdisk... It says "no fixed disks present" I have already made sure the cables are connected good. Can anyone help me? Please.....
