If the crash is occuring on both win98 and XP, maybe it is a game problem that can be patched? Have you applied any patches?
Sierra’s ftp site lists what appear to be three patches for GK1. They are
Maybe one (or more) of these will help. Link to the ftp site is below.
Unfortunately, with most of Sierra’s DOS games, the saves won’t be recognized once you’ve applied the patch (because the patch changes the version of the executable). Maybe you can find an explanation online somewhere of what these patches are supposed to do, so you can find out before you apply them if they’re intended to fix crashes like the one you’re experiencing.
