This really is down to updating all your drivers. First off, make sure you have the latest directX drivers for Win 98, and then install the latest video card drivers. I feel sure that after this everything should work fine.

You can get directx9 at the microsoft site (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=a19bed22-0b25-4e5d-a584-6389d8a3dad0&displaylang=en) (just click the link)...... ;)

You should only use directX9 if your video card driver supports it. Check for updates at your video card's manufacturers website and read the 'readme' to to see if it's compliant. If the latest drivers aren't compliant, you should only use directX8 and no higher.
I also believe DX9 is really for XP etc. and not for ME and lower, but you should check out Microsoft website to make sure.
