The most common cause of hard start or no start in that era Honda is the fuel pump relay, also known as the "main relay." The first source has a test and more details. However, the ignition switch is about as notorious and there is a recall on your 1998 Accord - see the second source, fourth recall from the bottom. If the warning lights are not coming on you can be sure the ignition switch is bad. If Honda did not yet replace it under the recall yet they should do it for free.
