At any rate, that poster was using Win98 - SFC isn't actually in WinME (of course) - but files may be extracted from the CD using that Windows version's msconfig feature: 'extract a file'

Windows Installer 3.0 Redistributable Genuine Windows download
* Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Service Pack 3; Windows 2000 Service Pack 4; Windows Server 2003; Windows XP; Windows XP Service Pack 1
Version 2 of the Windows Installer is more appropriate for WinME
