I did a quick search with Yahoo, browsed Intel and M$ sites and the answer is... Not sure.
I'd try to disable in BIOS and/or unplug any PNP cards one at a time, and use the on-board graphics to see if maybe the SATA drive is not the problem.
In what might be a similar type of problem I know that a fresh XP Home SP1 installation wouldn't "see" my PCIe with ATI 850 XT PE. After trying an install with a generic PCI video card it installed. I updated the CAB folder with the right driver, installed the PCIe card and it booted.

Make sure the drive is unformatted or only formatted with FAT16 or FAT32. NTFS is not supported in 98.

I'm not sure but to check you should have got a floppy with the SATA drivers on it. If there are no drivers for 98 than I would guess that you are out of luck.

Your trouble is likely caused by trying to install an 8-9 year old OS on more modern hardware. Intel provides no direct support for that OS on the board you list. And there is little M$ support for anything older than Winmdows 2000. Perhaps you could try your luck with the Windows 2000 drivers available from Intel:

In the scenario where you are trying to update old hardware from Windows 98 to WIndows 2000, and there are no Windows 2000 drivers, you can sometimes get by with the older Windows 98 drivers. I just don't know if the reverse is true....

Perhaps you need to try a later OS.

From that Intel link you might be able to drill down into the individual components and get Winows 98 drivers from there:
