Windows 98 (build 4.10.1998).....upgrades?

  summers13 16:55 16 Sep 2004

I have an old laptop running Windows 98 (build 4.10.1998) and I am having problems with the RJ45 adapter in the sense that the drivers will not load although hardware device is recognised as being there and wanted to upgrade to windows 98 second edition but unfortunately my system tells me that I need upgrades before I can go any further and I am assuming that they are referring to downloads that I can obtain somewhere. Does anyone have any sites that may have those downloads.............I would be eternally grateful.

Microsoft are now offering support & updates for Windows 98 & 98SE Until June 2006.
Just click on Windows Update.
Although if you have never applied any updates this could take some time.
