Have you got a link to the page where you downloaded the driver from
If you only have one USB port then get a powered USB 4 or 7 port hub, that plugs in to the PC port then everything plugs in to the hub

I purchased a USB hub fro staple, . Hooked up cable modem, printer in down link and uplink to my computer's usb hub. It did not recognize hub. it comes as 'unknown device' in device manager. Staples says you don't need any driver for the hub. How do I make it recognize hub. (untill then either internet or printer only one item can be thru USB.

When you plug a Universal Serial Bus (USB) device into the USB port on your computer, the device may not be detected by Microsoft Windows 98.
This behavior can occur if USB support is not enabled on your computer.
To resolve this issue, check the status of the USB components in Device Manager. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click System.
3. Click the Device Manager tab.
4. Click the PLUS SIGN (+) beside Universal Serial Bus Controller to expand the branch.
If Universal Serial Bus Controller is not listed in Device Manager, USB support may not be enabled in your computer's BIOS. Contact your computer manufacturer for instructions on how to enable USB support on your computer.
5. Under Universal Serial Bus Controller, you should see the following components:
PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
USB Root Hub
If a problem exists with a component or device, the device is listed with a symbol indicating the nature of the problem.
A black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field indicates the device is in a problem state. A device in a problem state is not functioning. A problem code explaining the problem is displayed for the device.
A red "X" indicates a disabled device. A disabled device is a device that is physically present in the system and consuming resources, but does not have a protected-mode driver loaded.
A blue "i" on a white field indicates the resource settings for the device were manually selected. It does not indicate a problem state or disabled device.
For additional information, please see the following article(s) in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

This will rebuild rather than restore the registry and also replace missing or corrupt system files
Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 right after the beep until you get options, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter, it will run through a few screens then say registry repaired. Press enter then press ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot.
When Windows has loaded, click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools then run system file checker and replace any files it asks for from the 98SE CD then reboot.
When it has loaded to the desktop, click start, programmes accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then run disc defragmenter from system tools
Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here
Tune Up 2006 Trial
Remove the hub and modem leads from the PC
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete.
Run Tune Up disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot
Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors
These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection (without an internet connection if applicable) from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot
(Skip this if you do not connect to the internet with this PC) After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
Try connecting the hub and then the modem via the hub to see if it connects, then install the printer drivers
Usually the printer is not connected / powered on until the driver set up asks for the printer to be powered on
