[RESOLVED] USB Drivers for Windows 98
I installed a USB PCI card, which Windows 98 is detecting and prompting for my Windows 98 disk. However, I have a problem in that my Windows 98 Upgrade disk is inaccessible in my CDROM drive. My first question is whether the Windows 98 USB/PCI drivers may be downloaded from somewhere. That would workaround the disk problem.
My broader question is how to get my Upgrade Disk active again. I think when I deleted Windows 95 after installing Windows 98 it somehow thinks I'm trying to "cheat" and won't let my CD-ROM drive access the disk because it can't find some hidden file. Any idea how to recover from this? Thanks

Not to be silly, but it is showing the correct driver letter for your CD, yes? Suprising how many support calls I get on invisible CDs when windows is looking at drive H: (or Q:, or g instead of the CDROM. If you can access the CD in DOS, create c:\windows\options\cabs and copy all the .CAB files from the CD there. Then point Win at that directory when it asks for the cd.
