Win98 wasn't natively designed for machines with more than 512MB of RAM. Some "hacking" will permit such.

A bigger concern would be if you can find device drivers for the system running such an old OS...

Again, you may be able to manipulate some settings, and get it to load and run; but if the machine is reasonably new (last 7 years or so) then it's nearly impossible to believe that the hardware in the machine had Win98 drivers (video/lan/sound/etc.) written for it. And dual-core would be pretty much useless, since Win9x (95/98/ME) never recognized more than one CPU. If you're determined to run Win98, it would probably be better to try to run it under a Virtual Machine...
