Am part way into a "fresh" reinstall of W98se.

Am getting a dialogue box shortly after startup with "Advanced INF install"
in the title bar, and in it a red circle with red X and
Error: could not locate the INF file
'D:\content\Win9x\Win98SE\WSEresume.inf"

I think it first appeared after rebooting just after installing drivers and
Liveware3 apps. for Creative soundblaster CT4830 (SBLive!) pci card,
suspect that I should have left the cd in the drive.

Any ideas, TIA

regards, Richard

ooops I tell a fib, msconfig | startup reveals that it was to do with the
MS green update cd ...I'll fiddle with that, obviously it needed to find the
cd in the drive after running it !

Yes, the CD must be present for at least one reboot after the updates are
fully installed, and must be present until all of them are installed.
