Boot up with your win98 recovery disk ( you do have one, don't you ) and get a DOS prompt.  Then issue the following command:

fdisk /mbr

have u use a partition magic if u do just use the boot loader.the other way is in linux os type lilo -u or try to installing windows 98 by choosing upgrade.it will replace the lilo.
