Can't really remember how similar Win98 is to XP, but if you right click on the taskbar is there a menu for Toolbars the includes something like quick launch?

have you changed the taskbar since they used to appear? they did used to appear, correct? right click the task bar, make sure that 'lock the task bar' is unchecked, and then see if, when you hover over the top border of it, two arrows (up and down) come up. When those appear, 'grab' the task bar and move it up to a double row and see if that helps.
