Don't worry. I've survived worse...

You can easily run Windows 98 in a virtual machine installed on a more modern PC. There's VirtualPC
by Microsoft, which I do not recommend since on my PC it only worked for a couple of days. All of a
sudden it complained about some stupid Microsoft software being too old. Deinstallation and new
installation did not fix things. Installation of a new version of the stuff VirtualPC complained
about did not work for a reason I do not recall.

Since then I've been successfully using VirtualBox by Sun.
