I hear we can not dual boot between Windows 95 and Windows 98. Can anyone confirm or give a work around?

This is not true. You can download this program and it should do the job for you:

Note this you MUST download this today (June 30th). Starting from July 1st this will only be available as a commercial product. It's called UpgradeAid 98 so this is something you may find useful.

Um... I'm not really too sure what to do if this doesn't work. Just that I have heard good things about that UpgradeAid 98 prog and therefore recommended it.

Both, Win95 and Win98 need to boot from the first active partition. So you have to use a third parity product (e.g. System Commander or an other one of these bootmanager) to come to a result.
An other, but boring workarround would be, that, if you've got two hard disks in you computer, switch in the bios every time you boot your pc the settings for the boot device from hard disk 1. to hard disk 2 and vica verca. Then you have to install Win95 and Win98 on different hard disks
