windows 98 requires a 486DX/66 processor or higher.
Being a 386, I would be surprised if the hard drive would be large enough to hold windows, the install uses around 150+ mb's.

this would be a good machine to teach yourself about DOS, but as per the above comment, W98 will not stick to this wall.
