win 98 installation problem

I'm reformatting win98 and when it was logging on I get this message.
"while initializing device NDIS: windows protection error you must restart yor computer"
so I had to ctrl, alt, del, to restart. and it keeps doing it..... it will let me log into safe mode is there anything I can do in there to fix it?

OK well your posting here so Imm assuming youve got access to a working system

Unzip the file and extract the contents to a floppy disk, then let me know what filename(s) there are :)
