What does it mean if the charging system light in a 1998 Dodge Neon with 89K came on and can you drive it?

If by charging system you mean battery light then check your battery. It might be dying (or dead). Chances are your car is low on power. Either check and refill the battery with electrolyte (distilled water) or buy a new one. Also, your alternator could be dying. Check that with a test light or a voltmeter.

It stops charging the battery and the charging system light comes on. Drive to the nearest auto parts store and they will check the system for free.

There is no reset for the charging light. If it is on, then something is wrong. Drive the car to your local auto parts store and have the system checked.

the generator warning light - it indicates malfunction in charging system. The light should go off once the engines started, if it comes on while driving, the generator drive belt and the charging system needs checked.

The light is telling you that there is a problem with the charging system. You are running off the battery and will eventually get stuck with a dead battery if you continue to drive that vehicle with the battery light on. Drive to your local auto parts store and they will test the charging system for you at no cost. You are probably in need of an alternator.
