it sounds like your IE install failed. if it did, you are now hosed. there is no easy way out except to reinstall Win98 from your setup CD. it will try to repair your Win98 setup. this usually works. then you can try installing IE6 again. if you don't have a proper setup CD and just have a recovery CD, it could wipe out everything on your system. the manuals that came with the computer should clearly explain what happens if you run the Windows recovery CD. if you have neither, then you need to see if the vendor supplied the setup CD somewhere on your hard drive and see if you can run Windows Setup from there to repair your system. who made your computer?
