With Win98, I would stay with 120GB or smaller harddrives.
Win98 does not include 48Bit addressing and as such it cannot deal properly
with drives greater than 127.5 GB( There are some ways around this ).
The 64 GB issue that arose was related to an early verion of fdisk not being
able to handle disk greater than 64GB. Also remember you may be limited by
motherboard bios if it is an older motherboard
Here is a couple of articles.
