There are a couple of ways. First, you can have Win98 installed and load XP, which will then set it up so that it asks which system you want to boot. One problem with this is that XP depends on the Win98 partition, so if you decide you don't want Win98 anymore, it is hard to get rid of.
A second way is to use the tools available from Linux to partition the disk and to install a boot loader, like grub, to select which system to boot. This is a bit tricker, unless you want to keep Linux, but it canbe done. You need to hide the Win98 partition when you install XP so that it does not set it up to boot through it. Both partitions need to be a primary partition.
You can actually have many OS boot partitions.
