Clean Install:

This is where you do not have a previous version of Windows installed onm your PC and have bought a new hard disk or reformatted the old one. This means that all Win98 settings are generic.

Upgrade Install:

This upgrades your existing Windows to Win98. This retains any previous settings that you may have.

Personally,  I would do an upgrade from win95, mostly because there are many bug in win98 that hasn't been dealt with. I thought they put in more hardware support, but I'm still havn't problems. so I had to uninstall it.
