Form your e-mail, it seems that you installed Win98 after installing SuSe.
From my experience, you need to exactly the contrary, i.e installed first
Win98 then SuSe which will make the dual boot configuration for you.It will never work the other way, even with WinXP

First off, it wasn't me who installed Win98; you should have replied to the original poster.

Second, it will so work, in any configuration; it's merely a bit circuitous to install Linux first.

In this instance, however, it is almost trivial, as the two systems were both installed to what was, at the time, the primary master drive. Thus, reinstalling the Linux drive as the master will allow us to boot into Linux, where it is a relatively minor task to edit lilo.conf and configure it to allow him to boot Win98 from the slave -- and yes, that can be done.
