if you were to onstall XP from the CD, all that you would need to do is boot from the CD. XP should then ignore your Linux and give you the choice of writing over Win98.
One point though, Windows normally demands to be on the first hard disk (you can get around this with GRUB by using the map facility, although I'm not sure if that will work during install.).
Make sure that you have a Linux or Grub rescue disk before attempting thi.
Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
