The only way that I know of, is to use a partition manager program, such as partition magic which costs money, or to use Ranish Partition Manager, a freeware program available at You need to set up a boot menu, where you can choose which partition to boot. If you select the fat32 partition to be the 'active' partition, it will not recognize the presence of another operating system, allowing you to install Win98. Once the install (and associated reboots) is finished, you will then have the choice each time you boot to select which partition you will boot as active. That way, you can boot either Win2000 or Win98.
