None of the HP Servers or infact any server do not support Windows 98.

I can see the drivers available for Windows 2000 and you may use Windows 2000 instead.

Very likely the graphics will be disappointing and you will need to buy a sound card. And it will be noisy at home.

I use a single server just as a backup store (RAID-1) for my data, keeping all my pictures and important business files from 1996.
