Your existing harddrive will stay as master (it should be connected on the primary channel as master), and connect the win 98 drive as either primary slave, or secondary master or slave

Yup just connect the 98 hdd to the main one on the ide primary connection on the motherboard. And remember to change the jumper on the 98 hdd to slave.

And configure the ide primary slave in the BIOS to AUTO.
