Windows update problems

Hi, I hope someone can help.

I have just reinstalled windows 98 on a computer at work but can't register it. It is determined to connect to the registration site via a modem - but we connect through a LAN.

I have altered the registry so that it thinks I have registered windows but when I go to windows update it jumps straight from 0% to 100% and says that there are no updates available, which I know isn't true.

Is there a way of making windows update work? With another registry tweak do the trick?

Cheers,

James
