I have just loaded Win 98 on a compaq Presario 5000.   I download the video driver from compaq and it says the action was cancelled because I don't have the correct rights to do this.   PLease contact your administrator.  How do I stop this so I can download the pertinent drivers for my system?

    Sounds like an ID file is missing. Is this a Restore CD W98 that came with the Compaq?

    You might try seeing if the driver is here:
    login:      drivers
    password:   all
