The short answer is no.
Puppy installs Puppy if you want it installed.
It will coexist with windows with use of a boot manager.
Puppy does not install MS Windows.

You could use Menu -> System -> Gparted from a Puppy CD to delete the partition containing XP, but then I'm not sure if a Windows 98 installation CD can format a hard disk to FAT32, which I'm pretty sure is all Windows 98 can handle. You do have a Windows 98 installation CD?

Why don't you like XP? Too slow, compared to 98?
