You cannot "uninstall" any windows OS through "add/remove" programs.

What you need to do is completely reformat the HDD and then reinstall your 95/98.

If you have the windows 98 startup floppy, just boot from it and select "start with cd-rom support".
At the dos prompt, type in "format c:".

Once it is done, put your 98 OS disk in the cd-rom drive.
At the dos prompt, type "[cdromdrive]:\setup" (ie. D:\setup).
