What is the Windows 98 Service Pack that you say should be installed before the nusb320-Eng-98FE generic mass storage device drivers?

I have Windows 98 Service Pack 1 in my Add/Remove programs list. Is it the same thing?

Why does it show as 35.5Mb but when I download it, it shows as 70.2kb?
Is this a self extracting file that will install at 35.5Mb?

If it is the one I already have listed, is it ok to reinstall? The reason I ask is because...years ago I reinstalled 98 Standard Edition over itself and was wondering if I needed to reinstall the service pack.

The download is over 35Mb, it sounds like it has not downloaded properly on your PC.

This Service Pack is not an Official MS service pack. There was a service pack brought out by Microsoft, that is the one you have installed. This one should be applied over the MS one and offers additional bug fixes.
