Windows 98 being as old and unsupported as it is, you'll probably find it
easier and your experience to be a much more positive one if you install
Debian by itself.

To initiate the installation, you need to boot from the CD. There are no
Windows or DOS executables on the CD.

similarly obvious. The installation manual explains everything you need to
know about installing Debian.
