Final peace of advise is to get Norton Ghost (I install this recently) Having it would have made this hole thing very easy to fix because it makes backups of you hard drive that include all you programs, settings and operation system, and personal documents. The backups then can be used to restore you computer to a known good state no matter what you have got wrong in a matter of minutes (the restoring of a backup deletes every thing on a drive). This is all so a good Just in case you have hard drive failure.
and again Good Luck. (I am not trying to advertise anything, being still in school and having no job this would not help me).

well, the other suggestion is to boot from a bootable floppy into dos. navigate to the (c:\windows\system folder I think} to progman.exe. once you know where it is then go to c:\windows and edit the win.ini. replace the shell.exe file with progman.exe. save and reboot laptop. It will look like windows 3.1. at this point you will need to reinstall internet explorer. once its installed you can go back into the win.ini and change the progman.exe back to shell.exe.
I might have missed some syntax here. I don't have a win98 system to check it on... but the proceedures should be close enough here. Its been a while since I've had to do this.

i can't do the network thing because i don't have networking running.
i have floppy drive with the laptop though. i searched for the files starjax said. i didn't find shell.exe but i found the following:
i saw the win.ini file. i don't know where/how i am supposed to replace shell.exe with progman.exe.
