You seem to be saying:
I have Win 98 and Win XP, I can not read the XP partition from 98 and want to.

If this is the case, you do not need to convert anything from NTFS to FAT32 or FAT. NTFS is an installable file system - meaning you can install it on another OS and read the files. You can not, however just install the filesystem. With DOS based OS's there is a Utility (?) that will allow you to read NTFS on a DOS/Win95/98/FreeDos system. I think it is called (do not quote me) NTFS2DOS or DOS2NTFS which would solve this problem. You will need to google "read NTFS in Win98" or "Read NTFS in DOS". The better of these utilities also allow you to write to an NTFS file system. Most of the utilities would load in the config.sys.
