I use Apache/Tomcat on win98. I like it and it is free. Tomcat is the official reference platform for the Servlet and JSP APIs.
You can get Apache at http://www.apache.org
You can get Tomcat at http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/index.html

Many people find that Resin (from http://www.caucho.com ) is faster and easier to install and configure than Tomcat. It is fully standards-tracking, executables and source code are available to developers for a free download.
If you want a powerful free servlet container under the GPL (GNU Public Licence), consider Jetty, from http://jetty.mortbay.com/ .
