Here's the fix

Use Registry Editor to delete the NameNumericTail string value in the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem
Restart your computer.
Run Windows 98 Setup again.

If you dont know how to edit the registry, ping back for directions or have a friend that does, do it for you.
