Put Folder Options in Control Panel

Specs: Windows 98

Is there any way to put Folder Options on Control Panel under Windows 95/98 ?

I have Windows 98 and I can find Folder Options under Explorer -> View -> Folder Options.
I know that under Windows 2000 and XP there is a CLSID required to put Folder Options in Control Panel, this CLSID just run this command:
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 0
(More over under Win2k/XP is also possible to run Folder Options with 'control folders')

Do you know a way to run Folder Options with RunDLL32 or with a VBS (Visual Basic script) under WINDOWS '98?

Searching with Resource Hacker and DependecyWalker I found that Windows 98 with IE5 needs SHDOC401.DLL and SHD401LC.DLL to run Folder Options, but I can NOT find any public method to open it.

If someone tell me how to open Folder Options with RunDLL32 or with a VBS file then I can easly put it under Control Panel just adding a CLSID (just like Win2k/XP).

I hope you understand what I have told you :P
