hmmm... seeing as we are dealing with win95,, and you are moving to 98se,,, and the machine is older,,, I would suggest that you format the drive and perform a reinstall,,,
Prior to doing this ,, I would use the connected pc,, and collect all the updates, upgrades, and driver packages for the Hardware that is in the machine,,
This will provide a current "clean" OS that should run smoothly and without issue.. Often during upgrades, there are small pieces of "stuff" that can remain and cause havok,, ultimately ending up in an FDISK- Format Position,,
Take the time to do it right,,
