4.10.1998 is the FINAL version of Windows 98. The version you say you installled st first is not beta but the FINAL release. Installing the upgrade will do no good (and no harm).

OK, if you want to remove the label, then go to the tools\reskit\powertoy
folder of the Windows 98 CD. Right Click tweakui.inf in that folder, click install.
Now go to control panel, click tweakUI. Choose the general tab. Now
uncheck the last item in effects (you will have to scroll to the bottom)
i.e., "Show Windows Version on Desktop"

You can download TweakUI from www.betanews.com   and click files
on top of the navigation bar. Now find out tweakUI or you can search for tweakUI form Edit -> Find.
