    i think all you should do is burn that into a cd.... not sure though....

    however, those ARE the setup files and .cab's (cabs are like zip files with drivers)

    not 100% sure about burning it tho

    Why you downloading tar files? You run linux? That's probably a virtual install for wine or winlin.

    ok, got 98 cd in.

    The file size of the :

    98 folder is 173 MB

    Drivers folder is 101MB

    = 274, but he may have left out webtv drivers and some other nonsense stuff to get it down to the basics.

    Edit: those are 98 files as I am looking at the exact ones as you listed on my 98SE CD.
