well Win2000 is the must stable, its more stable the WinXP and has better support for programs and games etc, trust me if you can upgrade from 98 to 2000 go for it. All your files will will be kept and programs will all be there.
Win98 can not support nearly as much RAM as Win2000 and XP, it can not support SATA and most new programs so go for Win2000.
You may need to install your graphic card drivers so if you do that don't forget to reinstall your games to make sure your games run smoothly.
When i upgraded from Win98 to Win2000 i had problems with programs not running correctly or not even opening, i think it was something to do with FAT32 and when i upgraded to NTFS so i had to have a fresh install anyway.
If you can do a fresh install, format your HDD and go for it.
