Do you have them BOTH installed now?  Suggestions.  Remove them all from device manager.  Remove them all physically.  Ensure computer is working ok without anything installed.  Run scandisk and all that just as a precautionary measure.  Re-install ONE soundcard and see if it will detect and load drivers...

Basically....  Re-boot your machine.

It would be better to remove all your drivers from safe mode.  After yanking out your sound card, just click f8 when your computer is about to boot up to your win 98 operating system and go into device manager and remove all your sound cards.  Also see if you have any question marks icon under device manager.  If you see them remove them out of your device manager.  Once all your sound card is removed from your computer, boot your system without installing your sound card.  Make sure you check your device manager to confirm all your sound drivers are removed and turn off your computer and insert your sound card and reboot your computer again.  Then see if win98 automatically installs your sound card. If it does test it. If your sound card does not work remove it from device manager and reinstall your sound card driver again without rebooting your system.  Once you finish installing your sound card driver, reboot your computer and test it.  Good luck.
