Bypassing the setup procedure for a peripheral.


Hi:
I have a PCI Ethernet adapter and its bundled soft. Following the user's guide instructions I go nowhere. But the soft in question is exactly this:
NETRTS5.CAT ;this is not a plain ascii text file
NETRTS5.INF ;ascii file
RTL8139.SYS ;the driver

And that's all. My o.s. is w98. I could always place the driver in /windows/system32/drivers. But where do I place the .cat and .inf? I think the reply to this post requires the specific knowledge of ms w98.
Thanks for reading and regards.
