Also, I think it's possible to have GRUB installed and "hide" the boot 
menu by setting "timeout=0" after you've set Win98 as the default 
target. With this setup, it should be possible to access the menu (if 
needed) by just pressing any key after the PC goes past the BIOS. I 
haven't really tried this kind of a setup but I think it should work.
