Sorry not back sooner. Windows is basically MSDOS so you will get Windows version when typing ver. MS-DOS is still used in embedded x86 systems. The command line interpreter of NT-based versions of Windows is CMD.EXE which maintains most of the same commands and some compatibility with DOS batch files.

Basically Windows 3.11, 95, 98 ME has Windows layered on top of DOS
Windows NT to Windows 7 it isn't layered and can run DOS applications by virtue of what is called NT Virtual DOS Machine (NTVDM) which is a virtual machine that runs on top of Windows NT rather than the other way around.

Win 98 should install as the minimum requirements are:
  • 486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor
  • 16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended)
  • A typical upgrade from Windows 95 requires approximately 195 MB of free hard disk space, but the hard disk space may range from between 120 MB and 295 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
  • A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT16 drive requires 225 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 165 MB and 355 MB, depending on your computer configuration and that options that you choose to install.
  • A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires 175 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 140 MB and 255 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
