    "fdisk: invalid option --1"
    its small L not 1. fdisk will display partition structure of all disks that LiveCD has recognized.

    two copies of Linux are installed in your disk and first partition is in FAT32 format. do you want to install Win98 in this machine or fix Ubuntu problem?

    boot up from Window98 floppy and execute 'fdiks /mbr'. check if Windows boot up properly.

    in case it doesn't work, i would suggest you to backup your data and wipe Harddisk. install Windows 98 first. create free space and install Ubuntu.
