With Windows 95 and the old personal web server you could create an ftp-server.
How can I do that with the new PWS and windows 98?!?

This is not an option with the newer pws, but if you need to have an ftp server the link below is an excelent addon and you can control rights and add user accounts to it and really have control over the ftp server, it is called serv-u ftp server.

I hope that this helps.

If you open the PWS and navigate to the Administration Tab, you will be presented with a service admin active HTML doc. With this you are able to setup root directories etc for ftp, set allow anonymous users. Now go to "Run" on the start menu and type  "Winipcfg", take down the IP address and input that into your FTP client. Now login using your FTP Client. For more info open the PWS and on the General Tab select more info..
