Previously I was able to access Windows Explorer via right clicking on the START button. I seem to remember something that gave me the option of turning this off. Now I cannot access as the Explore and Open selections are shaded out. Can someone tell me how to restore these features?

Look under your Win98 CD \reskit\powertoys and install TweakUI from there.  Open up TweakUI and make sure all drive are checked under the my computer tab.  This will fix the problem.
