I have tried renaming and extracting the usb files from the 98 cd to no avail. I am going to try the autoexec.bat tip, but I'm not sure how the delete the lines from the file using Notepad.
I would leave the autoexec.bat until the last. Usually Device Manager gets you through the driver installs with no problems. Try removing the actual driver from the system directory before trying to reinstall from the CD. Ensure your path is correct to the driver on the CD.
If you are still having problems, try a driver scan at :
This is not free to actually get a driver, but you can scan for free.
These may help to locate a driver if you want to try to replace the one's you have :

A free USB evaluation utility can be downloaded from the Shopping Bag page at USB.org that can be used to determine whether a platform with USB connectors is running a version of Windows that understands USB.
Hope this helps. Keep in touch.
