I already have win98 installed on my system and I understand that if I want to install linux on the SAME HARD DRIVE that I need to get partion magic to make a lnux partion.  But if I go and buy a brand new hard drive that I want to place linux on will I have to have partion magic??  Can I just put the new hard drive in, partion it for linux and tell linux to use that one and thats it??

yes, this is correct.
plug it in, boot up linux, install it to the second drive.
that´s it.

only thing you have to do of course is to install a boot manager. i recomand the use of the freely available "xfdisk" for this case.
