The drive is probably formatted with NTFS, which is not supported by Windows 98. See this thread.

Well there is another problem at the moment, when windows starts up, it says new hardware is found, USB disk, and it says it is install the software. However, it just sits there and the hourglass comes up, but it continues to do nothing and it wont proceed to the desktop.

Crying or Very sad

The drivers for the hard drive are not installing correctly. The generic USB drivers are not guaranteed to work with all devices, so it could be that this drive is incompatible.

Try using a different USB socket, see if this makes any difference. Try it in a powered USB hub - it could be that the PC's USB socket is not powering the drive sufficiently to work.
