Kliner1, unfortunately you can't, as they are two different versions of backup. Sorry I could have provided a way out for you, but here's the appropriate article from the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

SYMPTOMS
========
 
When you try to use the Microsoft Backup tool in Windows 98 to restore a backup
set created in Microsoft Windows 95 that spans multiple disks, a new folder may
be created, but the file in the backup set may not be restored.
 
CAUSE
=====
 
This issue can occur if your backup set contains a file that spans multiple
disks. Windows 98 cannot restore a Windows 95 backup set that consists of a
single file that spans two or more disks.
 
RESOLUTION
==========
 
To work around this issue, use the backup tool in Windows 95 to restore your
file.
 
To prevent this behavior from occurring in the future, use either of the
following methods:
 
Method 1
--------
 
Do not use the backup tool in Windows 95 to back up a single file that spans
multiple disks.
 
Method 2
--------
 
Back up more than one file from your Windows 95-based computer, and verify that
the additional file is on the first disk, in its entirety.

If I can use a friends win95 conputer, can I put the backup files
on his computer and how to then put on disks to use in win98.
Is there a way without using the backup program?

Use your friends computer to recover the files to a temporary folder. Then just copy the contents over to floppies afterwards. If some of the files are too large, zip them to compress them.
