Yes, you can install Windows 98/95 to VMLite Workstation, you can install it from a CD/DVD.

This user has put out a very detailed instructions:

sudeeptaganguly.wordpress.com/2010/10/22...-vmlite-workstation/

You can follow the steps, the only difference is to change the iso or cdrom to 98.

Although you can install Windows 98/95 with VMLite, however, there is no guest additions, so you will have to do more work to install 3rd party display drivers to have a better display resolution. The default is 800 x 600.
