If Google earth says "Only Win XP+", there is no way to run it.
If it supports win 98, could you tell the issue in detail. "Does not work" is very vague.
Google earth may not be installed because your PC is not getting a power connection and is not turned on.
I suggest you get VMWARE and run google earth from within linux.

Google earth will only work with Windows XP. If you have Win98 or even WinME, it will not work.

End of the matter and this thread.

Even if Google earth doesn't work on your computer, you can try Google Map because it doesn't need anything to install in your computer.
