I'm not shure what u mean. Do you have a problem to install Win98? Do you want to get rid of Redhat? Or do you want to make your system dual-boot? In the first case you have to use a partition manager in order to remove the Linux partition(s). In case you want to make your system dual-boot, it's best to start with Win98 and afterwards install Linux.

A shot in the dark:
I think you mean that it won't boot.

Try this:
Boot on a floppy.
Type
fdisk /mbr
(enter)
Take the floppy out and reboot.

This will clear the master boot record for any trace of the linux boot loader, which i suspect is preventing you from booting.

Hope this helps

It is common to only post comments and let the person who ask the question choose the comment, that helped him the most to be the answer.
If you look at my comment, you will observe that you are not saying anything, that i haven't said, so why propose this as an answer ?.

My hopes too if booting is the problem. It's hard to tell.
