When I did this I had no problems. But you may need to insert your install
cd and run a repair (reboot first). Can't recall all the steps but it was
pretty intuitive. Go to advanced and the selection that picks the boot
"thingy". Sorry I cant be more specific but it's a few months since I did
it. Don't forget to "set it on screensaver 2" ;)You can if you like use this
oportunity to check out the entire installation and fix anything that comes
up, but I would stick to one thing at a time.
Hope this helps.

Okay, I've tried everything suggested, but I constantly get a black screen
informing me that that hdd (hd1) doesn't exist and to press any key to
to the boot menu. I even changed the boot sequence in the BIOS to be hd1
first and hd0 second, and it still booted to the Linux (hd0) first.
I'll try and re-install W98 with it hooked up as the slave and see if that
makes any difference and let everyone know what happens.
Oh, by the way, changing from LILO to Grub works just fine, no hiccups or
anything, and it even saves the old LILO settings if you want or decide to
back to it. I thought that was a nice touch. Thanks again for all the help
