You could download a copy click here but it would be better to get it off the Windows CD to ensure that it is the right version.

Stick the 98 CD in your mums CD drive, click the Start Button and Click search. Point it at the CD Drive and type in whatever you're looking for. When it finds it copy using right click. Then open up the C drive and go to Windows/System and paste it in using right click.I think Windows/System is correct, it's been a while since I looked at 98.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. Type sfc, and then press ENTER.

3. Click Extract one file from installation disk.

4. In the Specify the system file you would like to restore box, type


5. Click Start, click Browse next to the Restore from box, and then locate the Windows installation files. By default, in the OEM version of Windows 98 and Windows 98 Second Edition the installation files are on the hard disk in the C:\Cabs folder. With a retail full version or upgrade version, you can also insert the Windows installation CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then locate the Windows installation files. The folder is named "Win9x". For example, if your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive is D:, the folder is named "D:\Win9x". For Windows 98, the folder is named D:\Win98.

6. Click OK, and then follow the instructions on the screen.

Please don't put a lot of ... continuous characters in the subject title, it's not neccessary and mucks things up.
