Since Win 98 is the operating system your PC uses, any software compatible for that system will work.

To actually make and update a website requires some kind of html editor, knowledge of html code unless you use something like Word, Front Page, NVU to do your pages, and a way to upload your pages to your site. Notepad, already installed with Win 98, is a good basic editor provided you know how to hand code a web page.

Depending on your hosting service, you may have access through a Control Panel or FTP. If your hosting service has a CPanel, it will have some kind of html editor. and ability to upload your files. A lot of the bells and whistles on which editor and FTP program to use is a matter of choice. I know of a 13 year old young lady on the island of Tanna who has built all her web pages with nothing but notepad. She's moving on up now as her needs are greater.

I know this doesn't answer all the questions you may have, but this site has a lot of great knowledgeable people who are here to help with your questions. We can direct you to many site soffering basic and free web site templates, tutorials to read to get you started and lots more.
