There are a few options you can go with.
My favorite is VNC.  Install the server side on the 98 machine and set the password, then on the xp machine, install the other app and use the IP address of the 98 machine to call in.  If the app is running on the 98 machine, no need for someone to be at the machine.

another good one is MSN Messenger has an option to call out for help.  A user at the 98 machine needs to authorize at connection time.
Netmeeting has an option to view desktop...similar to MSN Mesenger
all the above options are free ( I am assuming you are looking for free :-))
hope that helps
