Tomcat runs fine on win98 machine. Infact I do all my sample examples on tomcat with win98 platform.
Just set all the environment variables e.g. JAVA_HOME,CATALINA_HOME,classpath properly in the autoexec.bat file.
so you should not have any problems.

I'm running Tomcat (v4.0.4) off W98 without any hassles, after configuring these parameters:
CATALINA_HOME = C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4
CLASSPATH = C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4\common\lib\servlet.jar
JAVA_HOME = C:\j2sdk1.4.0_01

Good luck.
