have you looooked for the driver on the Win98 CD? Put your windows disk in the drive, and then choose specific location for the driver

D:\Win98

or if you copied the cab files after installation

C:\Windows\Options\Cabs

if it cant find the driver on there then you could always install it as a 'standard modem'. when you get the option, select 'choose from a list of devices', choose modem, and then standard modem. this should allow you to connect to the internet to obtain the correct driver.

You are probably going to have to download the drivers on a different computer and then when it asks for the driver just point it to the driver you downloaded.  You can copy them to a floppy if under 1.38MB, if larger then copy them to a CDR or a USB jumpdrive (if available)
Do you need links to download the drivers from?

"downloaded to a floppy disk...and no luck"... they may be compressed files that you will have to uncompress with winzip or a similar utility before windows will recognize them ....for example, ...       MB_DI5660_9xME.zip [more] needs to be unzipped.
