What is the blue screen error you get? Do you get the same going in to Safe Mode?

Can you confirm which driver you installed, and what version (including language) of Windows 98 you have?

I think you will have to reinstall Windows over the top of itself to repair this. This should not lose any of your data or programs.

I didn't write the drivers, all the files that are changed are within the install file - you can view them with WinRar or similar. This thread may also provide you with some detail on files that are used.

Hope this helps.
