You have 2 options:

Dual boot
-partition hard drive into 2 partitions (probably making the second
larger)
-install windows 98 on the first one
-install xp on the second one
-XP should detect 98 and give you a boot menu every time


Microsoft Virtual PC
-install Virtual PC
-install Windows 98 on the virtual machine onto a virtual hard disk (if
this sounds crazy, take a look at the interface and I think you'll
figure it out. If not, ask!).
