sammcse,
Entering win98 logon windows without entering password and click [cancel] button. Now, you are logon the local machine of win98. Use Start-find to search for file *.pwl.
Delete the *.pwl and restart the computer.

Re-enter win98 logon windows and enter new password, it will recreate and logon to your profile again.

Let me know if you have queries.     Pslh

sammcse,
remark to the above stated:-
If you cannot locate the *.pwl file, you may have to enable to show all system and hidden file in Start-settings-folder options,View,hidden files-[x] Show all files.

*.pwl is the password cache file.  Pslh
