As far as I remember, and I could always be wrong...

But I don't believe there is a way to block users from doing this, Windows 98 does not allow you to apply permissions to the user or file system.

Windows 98 does not have the security features to prevent a user from installing, or accessing any program on the HD. Not only does it not come with the account permissions the NT/2k/XP have, but 98 also does not support NTFS. (which is required to restrict HD access)

So, it might be the better idea, if I just upgraded the machine to XP or 2k.
Is that right?

Yes, either of those has full support for the NTFS File System which will give you the ability to assign permissions as you see fit.
