The drivers that are required are completely dependent on the hardware that you're installing the OS on. The OS itself comes with almost all the drivers it needs in order to have basic functionality. The easiest thing to try would be to go to the manufacturer's website and search their support section for driver downloads. Select the model computer you're reinstalling on and it should allow you to select which version OS you're installing. Pick Windows 98 if it's available. If it's not you'll have to resort to Google, but it would be possible that they didn't make Windows 98 compatible drivers for that particular hardware.
may be you are only using the USER account so folder options are not available... there are full administrative right to use folder option so have a check with this...
in case you are administrator then also it s not available means this may be due to virus attack some system files have became unstable .... so try reinstalling operating system ... and in further dont forget to use updated antivirus......
When you open the window "My Computer" you need to open the "Folder options". under "Folder Options" you have three tabs, you need to click on the "View" tab. Under "View" tab you have an option as "Hidden files and folders", you may select the option according to your choice over there.
Note : - In win XP the "Folder options" are present under the "Tools" tab, however it might be under the "View" tab in the "my computer" in win 98. I don't have a Win 98 handy to check that. i am sure you would be able to find that out. Once you have the "Folder options" the steps are same as mentioned above.
Hope that resolves your issue. Will wait for tee rating.

Follow the steps below to locate your Windows 98 product key code from the Windows 98 registry. Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Less than 10 minutes
Click on Start and then Run.
In the text box in the Run window, type regedit and click OK. This will open the Registry Editor program. Note: Do not make any changes to any entry anywhere in Registry Editor to avoid causing serious system issues. These steps only direct you to view entries, not to make changes.
Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder under My Computer and click on the (+) sign next the folder name to expand the folder.
In the resulting folders, locate and click on the (+) sign next to Software to expand this folder.
In the resulting folders, locate and click on the (+) sign next to Microsoft to expand this folder.
In the resulting folders, locate and click on the (+) sign next to Windows to expand this folder.
In the resulting folders, locate and click on the Current Version folder.
In the results that appear in the window on the right, locate the ProductID.
The numbers and letters on this line represent the Windows 98 product key. The product key should be formatted like xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx - five sets of five letters and numbers.
Write this product key down exactly as it is found here for use when reinstalling Windows 98. Note: If even one character is written down incorrectly, the installation of Windows 98 that you attempt with this product key will fail. Be sure to transcribe the key exactly.
Close Registry Editor without making any changes.
If your system was purchased with Microsoft Windows pre-installed, and you have not reinstalled it or upgraded it yourself, the product key found by the steps on this page will only find the generic product key that your computer manufacturer used to install the operating system. This product key will not work when attempting to reinstall Windows. In this case, you must use the unique product key that is on the sticker attached to your computer case.
