Do you want to just install over top, or do a clean install?  

To Install over top (to refresh files and such) just put the CD in The CD rom drive, and run setup.

To do a clean install, first reboot your system with the floppy that came with Win98.  Then type format c:/s at the A: prompt.  When that's done, reboot the system and change to your CD drive (usually D) and put the Win98 CD in the drive, type setup at the D: prompt, and follow the info shown to set it up.  The Win98 startup disk has generic CD rom drivers to make your CD rom drive accessible in DOS.  

Have you ever done this before?  If not, I can give you even more detailed instructions.
