If you have room enough on the hard drive for it, yes.  It is readily
The Handbook covers this well as do a couple of online publications
and some FAQs.  Look for 'dual booting FreeBSD'.

One thing to note, Win98 and FreeBSd do not run at the same time.  You
reboot to get from one to the other.

There are some emulation utilities that may allow this.  My mind is too
foggy to think of a name at the moment.  As far as I know, KDE doesn't 
have anything that will allow it.  (But the emulation utilities could 
run in a window like other things.)
Someone else is better to respond to the other things.

Part of running FreeBSD or any of this type of Freeware is doing the
studying to learn how to make it work.  When you ask very broad or general
questions, you will most often be referred to documentation - handbook, 
man pages, online FAQs and publications and archives.   That is the way 
this community works.

Once you have studied, then ask specific questions.
