Just run the Windows 2000 setup from Windows 98.  In fact, it should autorun.  Windows 2000 will prompt you with instructions every step of the way.  Make sure you pick clean install, instead of upgrading (upgrading will upgrade your current Windows 98 OS to Windows 2000!) and point the clean install to the partition you made.  Windows 2000 will automatically setup a dual boot from which you can pick Windows 98 or Windows 2000.
