Creating Cab files

Hi. My name is Lloyd Stuber.If anyone knows how to create cab files, for both XP and 98, I would appreciate any help. I am running XP Professional and would like to have the disc in cab files, if possible. I also want to know for Windows 98 as well, as I work on computers as a hobby and it would be much easier to put everyone's Install Disk into cab files. One can either post a reply here or e-mail me at with any info. Thanks in advance.
