Try downloading an appropriate driver frm the internet, you may still be using an XP mouse driver.

Win.98 should recognise your mouse as a generic type, driver only needed for DOS.

Have you looked in device manager to see if there is a yellow exclamation mark showing, indicating a conflict? Also even though it sounds basic, make sure the mouse is plugged into correct socket at rear of PC, you may have mixed it up with the keyboard. Both sockets are the same but different colour.
