Far better to leave it as ntfs. You can install the old drive as a slave and copy any files across to the new one.

The files copied from the old drive will take the permissions of the destination folder (if you have set any) and the user (you) will become the Creator Owner.
Otherwise there is no problem copying from ntfs to Fat32. However do not attempt to copy the Win98 installation, only data files created by you.
