By trying to change an NTFS partition to FAT32, ALL the content of the partition will suddenly occupy more space when changed to FAT32. Also FAT32 is limited to 36GB, so if your partition is bigger than that it will not work.

IMHO you would be better to select whatever you need from the NTFS partition using XP, and then have XP copy this data to the FAT32 partition for you to access from Win98.

XP is capable of transferring data between NTFS and FAT32 in either direction. :)
