If it's an exe file you will need to run the executable. It will install some files in a folder. It may automatically begin installing after that, or it may begin the installation after a reboot. If it doesn't' then go into the Control Panel, Install New Hardware and start the installation for a network adapter. When it asks for the folder where the files are, browse to the one the exe installed. If it asks for the windows files, which it will, browse to the win98 folder on the disk or to Windows, Options, Cabs on your hard drive.
