I can't remember if Windows 98SE has the Set Program Access and Defaults link from the Start menu, but that's the easy XP way.

Open up Windows Media Player, and click onto "Tools->Options".

Now click onto each tab (as I haven't used Win98 for a few years) and look out for the "file types" option. Tick ALL file formats that WMP supports and click OK.

In Windows Explorer hold the shift key down, Right click the sound or video file you want to associate with MP Tick the box always open with and select MP from list

It is WMP9 for Win98, WinME and Win2k.
