The simple answer is yes. As you mentioned there is a slight problem with Windows 9x and RAM greater than 512MB, but there is a work-around that is explained here. (http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=333688)

Another problem you may encounter is the size of your hard drive, but this can easily be fixed by using fdisk to create the partition sizes you require prior to installing 98SE.

Other than that I don't think you will hit any other problems. Have fun with the trip down memory lane :)
