Windows 98?

I just installed Windows 98 with this configuration...

Pentium 4 Processor 3.00GHz
512MB RAM
9.0GB HDD

Anyone know where I can find drivers for this it`s an HP Pavilion a462x

I'd try this....

When the new hardware wizard popup arrives, try putting in a copy of XP in the drive and navigate to the driver folder....that should do it. If you can't do it that way, go to device manager and update the hardware from there using an xp disk.

Ethernet, and monitor, and My original computer came with XP pre-installed so I don`t have a disk, I tried running XP with the 98 HDD attached and copied the drivers I needed but they wouldn`t install.
