Does it show up in My Computer or Windows Explorer?

Have you tried just typing 'drivers' in the run, without the C:\ ?

Drivers is in the path C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Drivers if you're using Win98.

And i did C:\drives as its win95

I think you need to go back to the beginning and explain exactly what it is that you are trying to do. If it shows up in Windows Explorer, what is the problem?

The drivers folder is not (or should not be) in the C:\ drive. It is a system folder and therefore should be as Valvegrid states in either the system or system32 folder.

Double click My Computer, then C:\ Hard Disk Drive, then the Windows folder, then the System32 folder and inside that should be your Drivers folder.

Or is it the My Computer icon that's missing from your desktop???
