To start, you shouldn't have install any IDE bus master driver when using Win98.  Win98 already came with the best bus master driver, simply check the 'DMA' check box under the HDD's properties.  It should be checked if Win98 detects it's a bus master compatible device.  Reboot in safe mode and remove the IDE controllers and reboot, let Win98 redetect the controllers.
