Since you were in a Dual Boot with Win98 and WinXP, when you installed
XP it placed it's boot loader on the C: drive.
So if you formatted and reinstalled Win98 you wiped the bootloader for
XP. If you didnt format the files might still be there. In Win98 go to
Windows Explorer>Tools>Folder Options>View>Click on Show hidden files and
folders and uncheck
Hide protected operating system files. Then in C:\ look for ntldr,
bootsect.dos, ntdetect.com and boot.ini. If they are there then you can use
the Recovery Console. Check here on its use

You will primarily be interested in the commands Bootcfg , Fixboot
and Fixmbr
