I need to be able to play my mp3 on my win98 and linux box. It is one machine that can boot either os. I have a dedicated hard drive I can use but is it possible to have a hard drive full of mp3 and formated so that linux and win98 can both play the mp3

format the partition under win98 to be FAT16 or FAT32, put the mp3 there.
All mp3 files are, of course, accessible from win98.

From linux, you can just mount that partition, (for example, /dev/hdb1 for first partition on primary slave hard disk)
mkdir /mnt/mp3dos
mount -t vfat -o ro /dev/hdb1 /mnt/mp3dos
Then, all your mp3 files will be available under /mnt/mp3dos. If you plan to save mp3 files while you are under Linux, you'd remove the '-o ro' part from the above.

The other way around is a less treaded path. format the partion under Linux to be an ext2 file system, dump all mp3 files there. install a ext2 file system explorer for windows. (never did this myself)

The ext2 fs explorer doesn't work, you need the mp3s on windoze to be able to play them from there, unless you are playing them over a network.
