Kris, you don't need anything other than what is on the system already. Both windows 95 and 98 use the registry service, REGEDIT4 or through the use of INF files.

Kris, there's no specific book that I am aware of that teaches using just INF files. Generally it covers all visual basic issues including INF files. In order to understand better how to setup INF files check your Windows 98 cd and look through the tools section for the Tweakui INF file. Open it in Wordpad and look at the structure of that file. From there you can understand what it is doing and then create one to do almost anything you wish. Using an INF file is as simple as right clicking on it and then choose install.

You may also want to use the registry editor and export a few registry keys and open those to see how they are structured and then use Regedit4 to make registry changes.
