yes it can, my son has 98, but you do need the software for 98, and the result is not that good, but you can get by with it..

with Ikelos, when he says, "the result is not that good"

If you are referring to speech, (as opposed to video), I found it just as good as with win XP. And the same goes for WinMe, which my dad currently has, with the lastest version of skype.
