Installed MS Flight Simulator 98.  When I try to boot the program, I get this message, and the screen becomes slightly garbled:: MSSystem266  The device could not be loaded.  Verify that the driver is installed correctly.  Apparently the driver is missing, how do I re-establish it??

I had the same problem and solved it by simply reloading win95 from the CD.

Don't delete anything, just run setup.exe again.
It will go back and reinstall all of the needed files without rearranging anything.

8/12/98 --  ran Setup on Win95 and the whole scenario went down-hill.  Before I do any heavyweight damage, I've taken the machine to a local repair shop which some folks at work swear by.  Thanks for your efforts.
