Did you do a search for fdisk?
which fdisk
locate fdisk
find / -name 'fdisk'
etc...

It should be in /sbin.
Is your PATH hosed up?

Try (as root) /sbin/fdisk -l as it may not be in your path. If that doesn't work, it's not installed.

Edit your /etc/fstab file as follows and it will mount when you boot ->
Code:
/dev/hda5        /WinE            vfat        user,umask=1000,rw,auto 0 0
where hda5 is whichever device your W98 drive is, and /WinE is the mount point you'd like to use. This scheme will mount your drive as read/write, but if you don't want to write to it, use ro instead or rw and it will be read only.

Spot on, mate! Always tell what fixed your problem, so that when someone else searches and comes to your thread, they'll know what to do on their system.

Good on yah! With that setup, you can mount as user by issuing ->
$ mount /mnt/win98
and not have to login as root. ;-) That's the purpose of user instead of root
in that line in /etc/fstab
