    Unfortunately reverting back to win 3.1 would require a reformatting of the hard drive.
    When 98 was installed the dos version was one that was released after 3.1 was discontinued and is not supported by it.
    Normally win 98 would not have been installed over 3.1 so non of the older OS would be present
