You need to stay in safe mode until you find out the problem that is causing windows to go into safe mode. Usually video problems are the culprit but looking in device manager is the first place to look for the problem.

Microsoft still has a troubleshooting guide for win 98.

Generating a bootlog file could help you find the problem quicker than any other way i know of.

I have even done something as simple as swaping memory sticks around on the motherboard to fix the problem. That is why a bootlog would help you find where the problem is.it does not tell you what the problem is but does tell you the last thing that did boot properly, which can tell you where to look for the problem.
