Have fun trying to set it up with VirtualBox however! Tried that and no floppy drive or floppy image would work)(Also tried getting 3.1 and 95 on other occasions)
You are best advised to install from the iso file that is in a folder rather than from a DVD. That has worked for me every time. Just use e.g. ImgBurn to copy the iso from the DVD to the folder.

Ironic that this post came up right while I am installing a bunch of OS to my VMwareworkstation. The reason windows 98 is giving that message is because of too much ram. I had to reduce my Ram to 512 MB from 2GB to stop the "you don't have sufficient memory" or whatever it was.

If your trying to install this to the hard drive as a duel boot, You may have to install additional drivers to make it support your ram. otherwise there may be a compatibility setting in the bios but i doubt it.

Not sure what the concluding fix for this would be, my fix took two seconds of reducing the ram amount in the settings.

Multi-boot systems are a thing of the past. Why mess with partitions, and boot loaders when you can just virtualize? It's a much more simple solution!

you would be dealing with less compatibility issues as well. i doubt you will ever find drivers for most of your hardware with windows 98

Another great point why a VM is the answer here.

98 won't recognise any present sound card or onboard audio chip! So don't plan on having sound. You'll also note from the link katussoft posted the age of the systems used! Pentium 4 or Socket A(462) were the last to see any chipset drivers as well.

With 98 having a 512mb barrier one old Windows guide explained an edit of the System.ini file. The [386Ehn] MaxPhyspage = 30000" value was raised to 50000 while running 98 here with 1gb or more memory. The pc tools/Winguides site used to have a download for tweaking things in the older versions later discontinued just prior to Vista's release.
