Is your memory seated properly?  Are all expansion cards seated properly?  Can you swap out the memory to verify that it is not the problem?
I had a problem with blue screens, fatal exceptions, etc after installing 98SE.  I worked on it off and on for a couple of months with no solution (using articles such as http://support.microsoft.com/support/windows/topics/errormsg/emresctr.asp).  I finally took the mobo back and got another.  I haven't had a problem since.

I would remove all cards except the VGA card and reinstall.

If this is stable, then add the rest in - one at a time.

Also get the newest drivers and patches for your OS.

Check for hard drive and other problems.

Check for viruses especially ( try fdisk /mbr to get rid of bot viruses ).

I had problems with an initial install of 98SE on my P-III 1000.  I simply let it run setup again and no longer have issue.  I think mine could have been something messed up with my drive configurations.  Running fine now, could also be a bad device driver.

Was the install an upgrade to WIN95 or a clean install of Win98SE?  Sometimes an upgrade to a system containing Win95 isn't as successful as a fresh clean install of the new system. If you only have an upgrade edition of 98, then you might have to reinstall 95 first to make sure all of the required system files are intact and then upgrade to 98.
