I am having trouble with a new SSL certificate and Windows 98 and Citrix.  The Windows 98 client does not properly read the certificate (Thawte Web Server certificate) that we recently renewed.  When we try to connect to our citrix server (MetaFrame XP) with machines with the Windows 98 client it says the certificate is incorrect.  If we use a Windows XP or higher client everything works fine.  It has been suggested that we update the Windows 98 root.  I have been looking for this update and instructions on installation but have had no luck.  I was on the phone with Thawte tech support for about 5 hours with this issue so I am pretty frustrated with it.  The Windows 98 client gets an SSL 59 error when it tries to connect.

Thank you.  What is the installation procedure.  I extracted the file but do not know what to do with the files it created.  Do they need to be copied to a particular directory?

They should have automatically extracted to the correct directory, maybe not in Win98. I will do more checking.
