Those .cab files are the files that windows uses to lode windows on your computer. If you are loading from a CD Rom then those files are on the CD. All you have to do is use someone elses CD to install windows but put you license key, or if it is brand new then have the store give you a replacement.

Those files are in the win98 directory

Best of luck,
David

If you need more info on this feel free to email me.

Using someone else's installation CD of Win98 is not something I would recommend unless you're into copyright infringement.

What I would recommend is making sure the cd is clean and try again - if that doesn't pan out, get a replacement cd. MS will be willing to help if you're the ORIGINAL REGISTERED owner.

Good luck.

With your reply clear and acknowledged, have you tried dealing with the fine folks at Microsoft?

That's your next option.

Good luck.
