Copy/unpack the file from the .cab on the install CD to a floppy if it'll fit if it won't use a CD-RW disc. Then use a Win98 bootdisk and copy it when in DOS to the proper location.

Yes, and to give you access to your CD or DVD drive. You may want to copy the file(s) (unpacked) onto a CD-RW disc using your working system that way you won't have to fiddle with too many command line tools.

Start the computer with a bootdisk and it will boot into MSDOS mode (or similiar) then reinstall Windows.

If you dont have a bootdisk you can make one from another computer under "Add/Remove Programs" in the control panel.

Or you can goto www.bootdisk.com and get one.

 

You might want to format disk (but do backup of files you might need first). Installing over a current installation is not a very good idea even if it might work. If you dont want format, you can delete C:\Windows\ and C:\Program Files\ then reinstall it.

If pressing F8 dont work, then holding CTRL down might work.

If drive E:\ is a cd/dvd drive you need to use the option on the bootdisk to load cd drivers, which will allow you to access your cd/dvd drive within MS-DOS mode. Note: When in MS-DOS mode be careful, drive letters may get bumped back one or more letters.

isnt loading the cd drivers when it gives the option to look at the help file, load without cd support, with cd support, and minimal boot. i did chose to have cd support. is there something else that i must do.

What .dll file did you delete that is needed? I'm thinking there may be a easier solution to helping you since you don't seem familiar with MS-DOS.
