I dual booted Win98/Linux with a Pentium 100Mhz with a 4 gig drive just fine back when I was first experimenting with Linux.
And recently I setup a old 486 Thinkpad with a 2 gig drive as Linux only - 2 gigs can feel pretty cramped nowadays, however.
So 3-4 gigs should feel pretty comfortable for a Linux Partition and Win98 can live on a gig easily (without apps, that is).
