mkdir /win98
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /win98
to get your win98 partition mounted.
You could add the line to your /etc/fstab  to get it mounted automatically on bootup.
/dev/hda1 /win98  vfat defaults   0 0.

Win98 does not support ext2. However, there is a utility called explore2fs which will let you browse your linux partitions from win98.

if your win98 partion is on FAT16, then yes
you can use vfat filesystem type. If you are using FAT32,
I don't think there is kernel support for that.
so, don't be surprised if you fail to mount it with vfat.

RH 6.0's kernel does support FAT32, older versions couldn't *write* to FAT32, but could read from it.
(I know , I did it with RH 5.2).
