Make sure you have a 50Meg /boot partition as the physically first partition. This eliviates any problems with lilo and the like. After that, make a partition of a around 2 gigs for /. Any other partition structure for Linux is available. Make sure that when you put your win98 partition, make sure its not after the 1024th cylinder, because you might have problems loading it. I use Bootmagic to switch between OS's. Use Partition Magic, it makes it extremely easy.
