Did you try it with each stick individually to see if any of them are bad?

Run memtest 86 and it will tell you if you have any bad ram. If one of them is bad, I can look for another one for you.

Maybe Windows 98 or your mobo can't handle the amount of ram you have. Try updating to xp and see if that fixes ur problem. If it doesn't its still worth the money!
