"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can install Policy Editor from the Windows 98 CD

It basically alters registry settings to remove items from showing in the
usual places in Windows 98. You can go through Google and hunt down
individual registry paths to things like your after like "Display" in Control Panel.
You can find sites like this...

Basically Windows 98 isn't the type of operating system you "restrict" use of.
That's why users move to WindowsXP or Windows2000/2003.
