Installing Win 98

My PC came with Win 7 pre-installed. I want to have Win 98 as a 2nd OS on my PC. I assume it's possible, but how to go about it?

You will need to run Windows 98 in a virtual machine.

I personally use VMware Player: Run Windows 8, Chrome OS on a Virtual PC.

There are no win98 drivers available for your hardware! Run it in a virtual machine instead. Why win98??

I wanted to run Windows 98 at one point, just for the memories of using it

Your best bet is a VM.
