Now you are with me, Calum.  ;)
I am indeed.
Lavender - you're saying you don't have a 98 CD or an XP CD?

      That will make the problem difficult to solve. And by difficult, I mean virtually impossible.

      So let's summerise. You have a working XP, and a non-working 98 on the same partition? (Ie both installed on C: drive) And you want to install Linux on another partition?

      Everyone needs a real Windows CD sooner or later. I believe in your case it is sooner.

        actually it goes like this,  I have a working XP, not working 98 on the same partition and what I want is to uninstall 98

          In that case I would be tempted to just delete the 98 Windows folder (in safe-mode or even DOS if necessary) and leave it like that, making modifications to your boot setup file if required. Double check you know which folder is for which. I've never seen a dual boot on the same partition before and I am actually quite curious as to what goes where. I'd wait to hear the others' view on this first though. :)

          The bottom line is, an operation like this is always risky, and if you carry it out, you must accept the possibility you will may to buy a new legal XP disk if problems occur.
