    Boot into DOS using Win98 boot floppy and run 'fdisk /mbr' - this should wipe it out. But, BEWARE - this removes any bootloaders you may have installed - after this, you will be able to boot only windows.
    If you are using WinXP, you can use the recovery console - i think the command is 'fixmbr'

    if you have the Norton Antivirus CD, boot-up your computer from that cd and follow onscreen instructions.
    NAV should be able to remove the boot sector virus from there.
