I just installed the beta version of Win 98 and when I go to install new software and it wants to install it on the C Drive, (The default drive for installation),  I go to the drop down menu where the drives are listed and it only has my C drive listed (I have 2 hard drives).  In order for me to select my D drive I have to edit the line that it tells me that its going to install to. (e.g. C:\Program Files\Unreal has to be changed to D:\Unreal).  Please help.

Is your other Harddrive listed in the Explorer?

Just in case...

To enable a hardware device open the System Properties dialog box at the Device Manager tab.
Click the plus sign next to the hardware type, and then double-click the hardware.
Under Device status, click Enable Device.
Notes
You can also open the System Properties dialog box by clicking Start, pointing to Settings, clicking Control Panel, and then double-clicking System.
To enable a device that was removed from a profile, add the device to the profile by using the Add New Hardware wizard. When the profile is active, start Add New Hardware and follow the instructions on the screen.

Yes indeed...  That was a problem with the earlier beta releases.  For the time being, the only solution I know is to copy the drivers to the C:\ drive and install them from there.

Yeah, I know, how did we get from program installation to device drivers?
