Do you have any kind of anti-virus software running, and,
if so, does disabling it help?  There were some Python
vs. Norton AntiVirus issues awhile back, though these
seem to have cleared up on my end.

Have you tried reinstalling 2.2 from the native installer?
When you say it freezes up, when does this happen?  Upon
booting Python?  After an hour of using?  Might helps to
provide more details.  In principle, nothing about the
Win98 + 2.2 combo should prevent smooth co-functioning.
