    Ok I have a old IBM w/ Windows 98 and I have a network card and I am wanting to install it. Well I have a network card designed for window 98 and I have the drivers for it, and when I install it, it asked for the window 98 OS CD and I dont have it. Now Is there a way where I can install it and use it without having to use the 98 OS Cd. I have 2 other network cards that I can use. Have any ideas that could solve my problem?

    The reason for this is I am trying to enable this computer to play me with my computer on a lan with COD 1 and Wolf. Enemy Territory.

    Try canceling out when it asks for the Win 98 CD and see if it still works fine.

    If it is an OEM install of win 98 try directing the installer to C:\Windows\Options\Cabs. This is like what i386 is to Win2k/XP.

    Do what I suggested, just hit cancel on the dialogue box for the CD and see if it will install ok.
