unable to install

I have tried both ways, so I have both examples you pose.  I have fours CDs
that have a single .ISO file, and I have four where I used WinImage to
unpack the ISO files into multiple files that are then burned on the CD's.
I thought unpacking the ISO images would create bootable CD's that I could
use to install over the existing OS (win98).

One common problem among people who haven't done this before is that you 
may be burning the ISO onto the CD as a file, rather than an image. 
Forgive me if this is not the case, it's not clear from your message. 
When burning an ISO image, you normally have to select a special command 
to transfer the image, rather than just copy the file onto the CD.

When you put those CD's into CD-rom drive on a working computer, what do 
you see? Do you see a single file named *.iso? Or do you see a whole 
bunch of files and directories?
