    check to see if your cd rom is showing in windows explore... windows 98 had a habit of losing the cd rom drives.. you may have to go into device manager and remove the cd rom drive then reboot let it fine new hardware and set it up for you

    If you burned the cd on his XP, and tryed to play it on your 98, it might not work. I have that problem.

    Put the cd back in your burner and finalize it!
