Dual-boot recommendations for newbie

Complete Linux Newbie here - looking to set up a dual-boot linux/win98 system.
Wondering if the following setup would work.
Hard drive #1 13GB: partitioned for win98 and linux
Hard drive #2 20GB: data drive FAT32

Plan on using Libranet 2.8.1 distribution.

Will I have any problems reading/writing files from both OS to the data drive? Any other gotchas to know about?
