Windows 98 2nd ISO ?

Hello,

I have to do do a fresh install of Windows 98-2nd. on multiple machines.
It has to be 98, long story but the boxes run some OLD job shop equipment that will not play nice w/ XP & not at all w/ 7.
The company has all their valid 98 keys but no install discs.
I no longer have 98 install discs.
Any thought on where I could get an ISO?

ps....I see various torrents out there but looking for something legit (ish) & not full of viruses!

They have it at CNet, and from what I understand it's a respectable site: CLICK ME

if you can get a hold of one of the pc's that has a good copy the Image that to another harddrive then go through it and add or remove whatever you want then you have a good image on an extra hd. then when you neet to reinstall an os all you have to do is reimage it and the will rewrite the bad drive to what is on the contensts of the good image and will save you a lot of time installing updates and software and settings. when that is complet you can use Microsofts keyupdate tool to update the os key that will make it legitimate.

Windows 98 is no longer avaliable via any download form from MS due to a copyright issue with Java. Just to put that out there.
