I got this from somewhere but it works perfectly:

   1.Boot the PC with the Windows 95 Emergency Startup Disk to the MS-DOS prompt but make sure your CD ROM drivers
     are loaded on the disk and have access to the CD_ROM drive.
   2.Run the MS-DOS editor EDIT and create a dummy file NTLDR (no extension) in the root dir C:\
   3.In the Windows95 directory (usually C:\WINDOWS), rename the file WIN.COM.
   4.Start the Windows 98 Setup with: SETUP.EXE /NTLDR
   5.You will be prompted for the directory to load Windows98 into, by default if you already have Windows95 loaded and are upgrading, it will have c:\windows.000 make sure you change it to c:\windows or it will load Win98 in another directory.
