@ autopartsasia :
Windods 98 does not support SQLEXPRESS. You can't install it on win'98 PC. If you can change your prerequiste of setup to ACCESS 2000 rather than SQLEXPRESS, change it, or change you OS to Win'XP professional or Win'2k Professional.

You could install msde 2000 (sql 2000 version of distributable SQL server)
