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.

It shouldn't.  One thing you want to do before installing though is read the 
manual that comes on the CD.  I think it's named README.html or something 
similarly obvious.  The installation manual explains everything you need to 
know about installing Debian.
