No, that's fine, the drive works, it just won't play DVD's. I presume it's a software issue, as the previous DVD software came with the graphics card.
maybe you could try a different software for dvd playback, like nero or cyberlink...even windows media player. (not sure if 98se supports that)
new cards tend to come bundled w/ some software. did your new card have any?
maybe the codecs that worked w/ your old card, may not work w/ your new one.
try a seperate dvd player software and see if it plays.
if all else fails...you could upgrade to XP!
