finding files on Windows 98 CD ROM...

I own a Windows 98 CD Rom.  

I need to find a certain file say "ndwan.dll" How can I search for the file since the data is in a cabinet form on Windows 98 CD Rom?

I know that I use the extract program on DOS.  What is the syntax?  (My CD Rom is a D drive and my hard drive is a C drive.)

Thanks.

The nice tool in Window 98 that I use and I have Windows 98, first edition, and Retail version CD.  I do this:

start
run
sfc

Then with that you can point to the exact file to replace, or use it as a tool and let it check for any/all changed/corrupted files and when they are listed, choose the restore option.

Then point to the restore from location as follows:

CD ROM or Disk ID and then WIN98

example, mine is G, so I restore from
g:\win98

If, however, it's a non Win98 file, you'll know and please advise.

I had no luck finding the "ndwan.dll" on either of two systems.  If still unresolved, please tell me more.

I did, however, find these:

NDSWAN32.DLL which is ISDN support library for Windows 98.  and the 16 bit version of that as well.

Those are, incidentally on the precopy1.cab file of CD-Rom.  This type of information I find from a little exe called FileInfo from the Windows 98 Resource Disk I chose to install.

DO THE SFC FROM WITHIN WINDOWS FROM START-RUN.  Quicker/easier.
