I want to keep linux and reinstall win98. Both are on the same harddisk. And I use lilo boot. I don't know if this matters but win is in the beginning of the disk and linux (suse 6.3) at the end.

You are using Suse. Then what's the problem? Create linux boot disks with suse. In the Suse CD, in Dosutils dir, there is this file, that automatically does that for you. Then reinstall windows. After this if you want Lilo in mbr, use Yast and set it up. I use Suse 6.3 and found it easy to do that, better that RHL 6.2. Use Yast to set windows and Linux in Lilo. Try and see.
