SQL Server 7 and Win98

I've installed SQL Server 7 Beta 3 on my Win98 machine. The installation seems to have gone okay. However, I'm getting various errors which indicate something is not setup correctly. If I run Service Manager, there are no services in the drop down box. If I run Enterprise Manager, it gives me an open error when I try to start the server.

Any ideas?

This sounds similar to my experience when I was attempting to install 7.0 beta on a WIN 98 standalone computer.
If that's what you're doing, here's your solution.  If not you can reject my answer.

Solution:
Right click on Network Neighborhood and view the Properties. Check on the Configuration tab and ensure that a network client like "Client for Microsoft Networks" is installed.  If not, use the add button and add the network client. After this is installed you should be able to successfully install SQL Server Beta 3 on your Windows 95/98 platform.
