Yes, you can. It's just that you gotta run LILO after installing Windows '98.

 Enjoy!

It is possible that lilo won't work because you have a large hard drive. Lilo does not work when the root directory is located in a partition greater than 1024 cylinders. For a HD running in LBA mode, this occurs after about 8 GB on your hard drive. Windows must be your first partition. How big is this partition, and how big is your hard drive?
