No, and it probably never will. Win98 would be harder to port than 2000 or XP, because Consumer Windows depends on DOS and BIOS services too much during its startup process.

Not to mention that you can't port something without it's source code.

Not actually true; if the source and target environments are *very* similar (which they are, for these purposes - PC and Xbox have almost no differences from a regular OS's point of view, beyond that which is already abstracted away by device drivers) it's plausible to do a binary port by disassembling and modifying the executables. Very hard, but not impossible.
