First let me say there is no such thing as Linux 9.0. Perhaps you have RedHat 9.0? Anyway, do you want to dual boot or do you want to run Windows inside of Linux? You can use vmware to run windows inside of Linux.

Talking instaling windows98 on to linux 9.0

dont install first redhat 9.0 in the hard disk and then windows 98 because win 98 will overwrite the boot sector so all linux os will become waste..
then first install the windows..make some space windows 98 requires not more than 1 gb of harddisk give that space 5 gb its ok to that..after completion of the windows then install the redhat linux in the space is easy
more information about this mail me to
good luck
dont install first redhat and windows next ok\
