It's far more fun to get somebody else (the more computer illiterate they are the better) to break it, as they'll quite often break it in ways you didn't even know how.

Boot up in a Gparted Live CD (google it, it's free to download), create a second partition on your system drive in the free space. Move your system partition to the second partition.
Set the second patition as bootable (active), then set the first partition as non bootable (non active)
Then restart the machine boot to a windows/linux OS installation CD,
Install the new OS to the First partition (where your system used to be before you moved t to the second partition), then restart the machine and try get it to boot to the Original OS (ie, your Win 98 installation), without the help of a bootloader.
I did all of the above and trashed my system for about a month before I fixed it.
(My specialty is breaking things in an expert kind of way, usually on other peoples computers!)
