I see 2 things happening here, and AFAIK they're the only real bugaboos to
Win98.

1) When you install Win98, it will overwrite existing DLLs.

2) When you install software, Win98 will attempt to protect its' DLLs.

There's a new feature in Win98 called VCM, for Version Conflict Manager.
It's a great idea, but it needs work. What to do? First, try re-installing
the programs which are giving you trouble. If this fixes it, don't worry
about it any more. If this doesn't fix it, have a look at where your new
DLLs landed and put them in the proper directory manually.
