I'm using Win98. I don't seem to have boot.ini.
Whereas I couldn't find anything in the manual for grub that would do
what you need, you can do it from the Windows side. Add something like
this to your config.sys file in Windows98:

MENUITEM=dummy_entry,Windows 98
MENUITEM=win98,Windows 98



<rest of config.sys goes here>
Do you really mean config.sys? That looks more like the syntax for system.ini or win.ini.

Yes, I really mean config.sys. It was a little-known technique, that relatively few are aware of.
