I usually keep Windows up to date although lately I have to dig around to
get to the site so cutting back on support is most likely the culprit, and I
did try updating the engine installer as Shep mentioned with no luck so I'll
try the drivers he recommended next.
Thanks to both of you for the help.

The upgrade from 98 to 98SE was originally a patch, sort of the like the

XP
SP1 thats out there.... I dont know if 98 updates are still available as

it
is no longer supported by MS as of June 2003. (End of Life). Anyhow I am
assuming you have tried http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and have

updated
your exisiting version.

This is copied from the MS website pertaining to their support of Windows
98....
**** No-charge assisted support for this product will end on

30-Jun-2003.
After 16-Jan-2004, this product will be obsolete and assisted support will
no longer be available from Microsoft. Online self-help support will
continue to be available until at least 30-Jun-2006
