You may be better with linux,

do you know the spec, if it is not big then it is likely that it will not run 98.

no i have no info on the spec or what programmes may be on it or lead at present hence as soon as i got a lead i was going to reformat and try and load w98

It doesn't have hard drive (as standard) and the OS is in ROM.
