Go to control panel click on add/romeve program icon,  On the list of applications installed look for 'uninstall windows98', select this entry and click on remove button this will remove windows98 and all its components.

You can also run uninstall from win98 cd.
Please let me know if this works.

If you installed WIN 98 over WIN 95 with the Upgrade CD then do what ronaldo said will work, but if you just installed WIN 98 (which I am guessing you didn't) then there is no way to get it out of there..
