its more likely to be a dodgy drive, it sounds as if the cache on the drive is not being written permanently before windows shuts down, hence the "didnt shut down properly" message. run chkdsk and scandisk, make sure there's no drive errors, and make sure win98 is updated (via windowsupdate) as this was - at one time - a known issue with certain hardware combinations.
