Both beedubya and daf are right in saying Win98 should be loaded first whenever creating a dualboot. However, this doesn't seem to be a issue related to which OS was installed first.
Stumanoo, the reason why your dual-boot menu doesn't show the Win98 option is because the path for the Win98 isn't included in the boot.ini file. Look at the line just below [operating systems]
.... you should have anoterh line that reads something similar to:
multi(0)disk(x)rdisk(x)partition(x)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows"
Knowing which partition you installed Win98 is crucial here... you can manually create the line i typed above. where you see the 'X's.. is where it needs to be edited; however, I need to know where win98 is isntalled in order for me to help you further.
