Doesn't Accept Driver

Specs: Windows 98SE, 200mhz Pentium/64mb RAM
I have a D-LINK DFE-530TX+ E1 PCI NIC
After browsing around, I found the generic driver pack that has all of the drivers (Linux, 95, 98, ME, 2k, XP). I've actually found several versions of it, all slightly different. But no matter what I use, it just brushes over the files with no success.

98 recognizes the card, asks me about drivers, but doesn't accept the drivers designed for it.

All of the disks I found had no true install program. It just had a front end telling you to insert the card, restart the computer, and insert the disk upon prompting for drivers. Then I had one that just gave a generic 'error' message (thats all it said, 'error')

Anyone have the drivers/know how to fix them?

(i'm trying to get Palm Desktop on it so I can test my serial cable I hacked together for my Palm IIIx, but its too big for floppy, and I have no CDs...plus, having internet on it is good for syncing to my email, easily downloading apps, and file transfer)

Help

Just a bit too reto

As far as I know, with 98 the windows\inf folder is the only default folder that is searched for drivers. Any other location must be specified exactly, drive and folder. So if, for example, they're on a floppy you need to direct the search there. You may need to browse the floppy if there are separate folders on it. It's looking for files with an .inf extension. Or maybe MWCC's link will have an install program.

For some weird reason, I tried it one more time with a new download of drivers, and it worked. Thanks for the help.
