Is there any performance difference between using Win9x vs. Win2000/xp for folding? I'm mainly concerned about this because it would be nice, not having to have a larger hdd's for folding rigs.

98x is a little bit faster. but only about 2%, 5% tops. the downside is though that if you have an OS crash, you will lose gromac wu's. I used to run the farm on 545 mb fireballs with 98SE. they did really well except when i was having trouble with power failure.
