Although a lot of things will work either from the optical drive or thumb drive, Win 98 was just not designed to do that. If you had a computer BIOS that was able to boot from the thumb drive, and you installed it to that drive, then possibly. Older computers do not have that capability. Live Linux CDs are specifically designed to be bootable. Win 98 CDs are not.
