How do I Identify Windoes 98 files on Disk

My Windows 98 system will not reboot since the mspwl32.dll cannot be found.I cannot locate the file on searching for it via a DOS window. I would like to recover the files that were stored in the documents folder and my mail folders. How can I locate these files via DOS. that is what are the names of these folders on disk, so I can copy to floppy etc? My system is an Aptiva 2153 and the restore procedure wipes the disk clean. Thanks for any help on this one.

use DOS command.

C:\DIR *.doc /s

If you not boot in Window, you must run Smartdrv.exe before use  C:\DIR *.doc /s

Hambridge, if you're using standard windows installation on drive "C", you will find your documents at:

C:\mydocu~1

The " ~ " is called a tild and is to the left of the " 1 " key on the top row of your numeric keys on the keyboard.

Try : copy MSPWL32.DLL in another Win98 computer to your System folder.
It's about 40KB, place in Windows\System
Then reboot.
