initially in the setup it will ask u to keep
dual boot or upgrade version, seleck dual boot then after wards it will asks for file system changes select the present file system i.e., fat32 only don't convert to NTFS
if u convert to NTFS ur older OS doesn't recognise the NTFS partition so u can't make dual boot, if u selected dual boot and selected NTFS conversion then this error will comes, if that is the senario then u have again format ur hdd then first install
98 then try with 2k.
i hopethis will solve ur problem

If you want to have the W98 partition fat32 and w2k partition NTFS you can go to the powerquest web site and buy partition magic for about $60. It comes with their bootmagic product which works just great for what you are trying to do. I am running w2k/w98 dual boot on one machine and wxp/w98 dual boot on another using this product with no problems. However you can't see the ntfs partition fron w98.

When booting to your win98..
Run the win2000 setup. It will prompt u that u want to upgrade or clean install. Choose clean install.
After the installation, u will have win98 and win2000 before u boot to windows.
