    There is a hidden file in the root directory named msdos.sys. You can open this file by opening a command prompt and typeing EDIT MSDOS.SYS

    In that file should be a parameter for bootmenu, it should be changed to 0.

    For more details lookup MSDOS.SYS at

    I think you can go into msconfig and the boot.ini tab and delete the string with win xp as a operating system and make the 98 the default OS..
