This is a common problem, as the installer is looking for files from the installation CD--but you may already have the cabinet (.CAB) files on the machine. The default location is Windows\Options\CABs--but they may be elsewhere. If they are not in the default location, use the Windows Find function or the DOS command lines
CD \
Dir *.cab /s /p

to find them. If you do not have the CAB files, get a Windows 98SE CD from somewhere and use it. In either case, see my article Corrupt 98 to find out more.
