Here are a couple of good references that should help. It's much easier to do that it seems.

If you already have the 98 system set up, make sure to backup your data (just in case).

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-7.1-Manual/custom-guide/dualboot-choosing.html

Good luck!

I suggest you use GRUB (in Linux) to do this. GRUB is very flexible and easy to learn/use. (in fact you don't even need pointers to the net).
If you are using RH 7.2 or later, then GRUB is installed by default. You just need to edit the menu list (Linux and Win98 boot options)and install it in the MBR of your BIOS boot drive by running an install script.
do a $ man grub or $ info grub to view the manual.

hi,
i dont think u need any website to guide u thru this, if u know how to install linux. make sure u install ur win98 first. then go aheadc and install linux. if u've got RH7.0> then this would
be easy to install. make sure u know ur monitor and network cards. then install lilo (thats the linux loader)into the first sector of the first partition. this is the default.
hope this helps

If you use Mandrake-8.2 Linux, the Installation wizard will help you do this. Only, Win 98 should be installed before you install Linux. The wizard really makes things easy.
