Use a USB to PS/2 adapter.

Thanks, but I forgot to mention that I already have a USB to PS/2 adapter. After, I plug in the mouse, I get an error message that I need to install a driver (which I don't have on my hard drive).

Do you have the 98Se cd?

The files for usb (HID compliant mouse), are installed off the 98Se cd. All end up in C:\Windows\System

MOUHID.VXD
VMM32.VXD
MSMOUSE.VXD
MOUSE.DRV

For a PS/2 mouse, the drivers are same as the last three above. If you've ever had a mouse on your machine, the MS mouse should work. What's the error message you get...exact error message?

Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, I no longer have my Windows 98 2E CD, so lack access to the files on it.
The error message that I receive first gives a "driver location" as c:\windows\inf\hiddev.inf. Later, it indicates a "source file" as c:\windows\system32\drivers\hidusb.sys=base5.cab. I don't know which of these I need.(Or both?) Sorry for my ignorance.
Is there a website that might have the driver available for downloading?

Reading hiddev.inf in my inf folder shows that you'll need more than just one file.

But hidusb.sys is inside the base5.cab file sure enough.

http://dll.yaroslavl.ru/?lng=
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/i...

But I don't see that either one of these sites carry some of the files that you will need eventually to install your mouse.

ebay has 98se installation CDs for sometimes $20...

Get a copy of 98SE thru the torrents.

You have one more chance at Base5.cab...look for the C:\Windows\Options\Cabs folder.
