Do you have a Win98 Startup Disk? If not, go to to get one.

Boot off this disk and select the option from the boot menu to load cdrom support.
As the boot up process, off the Startup disk, is happening, look what drive letter MSCDEX assigned to your cdrom drive. Once at the A: prompt type the drive letter you saw during boot like this:

X: <ENTER> (Where X is the drive letter assigned)

Now the prompt will be your cdrom drive, type:

cd win98 <ENTER>
setup <ENTER>

Can you please update your other thread with your solution:
