I´m not sure if this can be done in the way you want.
(I don´t have Win9x on my conputers.)

I think Win9x needs to be installed in a primary partition
on your first disk. So either swap your drives (jumpering
the smaller one as master) or make a primary partition
of size 2 gig on your 4.6 gig drive, leaving the rest
of the drive (and the entire smaller one) for Linux.
