I will like you to check your memory if it is compatible with the systemboard. Also I will like you to check your hard drive if it is well partition and formatted. If the windows directory is corrupted it will not load properly.sometime if memory is not okay with the processor it will not finish loading.
You have three option
1 memory not compatible
2.windows directory corrupted
3.Hard drive not partition and formatted properly

For the first part of your question:

Cache is a special high speed memory that the CPU uses as a buffer for the data needed for the next operation.

Internal cache is inside the CPU.
External cache is on your motherboard.

This is different from the system RAM that you install in the DIMM sockets.

Part 2:

Verify that the CPU clock speed settings are correct for your CPU.

Try just 1 DIMM module installed.
the DIMMs may not be compatible with each other, or 1 may be bad.

Next, try removing all plug-in cards except for the video card.
W98 prefers installing devices 1 at a time AFTER the OS is installed.

Beyond the above, the simplest thing to do is swap in new hardware until you determine what part is bad.
It could be memory, motherboard, or CPU issues.
