I have a printer that is USB and it works fine on my windows 98. I am trying to install another USB device, it is a foot pedal, similar to a joy stick, and it keeps saying I am missing Human Interface Devices and also I cannot find a USB option in the device manager. It says I am missing three files (hidci.dll, hiddev.cat and hidclass.sys) and it says to load the windows 98 SE disc to get these, but when I do it says they are not on it. I even tried to manually extract these files from the disc and could not get them. Any suggestions please?

If you go to Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Windows Setup>Accessibility I beleive you'll find what you're looking for. When I have more time I'll check and see what is on my 98 disk.
