Your main problem will be drivers.

Hi! I'm planning to try to install Win98 on a 2005 tablet notebook HP TC4200. Has anyone done it already, even if it was on the digitizer-less cousin NC4200?

I'm trying to install 98se on a Dell Inspiron 8600. It's been rough--lockups trying to install pci, usb drivers. Intel 855 Chipset drivers and the tweaked Nvidia seem to load ok till it gets to usb installation. I do have my cd key memorized now though. I've been writing down the order I install drivers/updates and trying different orders. Haven't figured it out what works yet. I might have a hardware issue though- when it warms up it takes way longer to load stuff. I'd love to talk to someone who's accomplished this.
Got everything working including bluetooth (dell bluetooth 350 module). I had the most trouble with Intel's IDE controller- trick was to set to primary only then run 'add new hardware' non plug and play wizard to install ide for cd drive. The same goes with Dell Inspiron 9200, which is a nicer computer( wide screen, 4 usb, subwoofer). There's a specific install order for the 9200-install bluetooth hardware/software last after all updates.
