    Doesn't a visit to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com pull in the Sun virtual machine now? It seems like it did with a laptop I updated recently. That was winxp pro though.

    If you are using win98 and not 98se you might just have a problem trying to get the VM to work right anyway.
    Try this too if it isn't what you installed before.

    I'm running Blackdown Java-Linux Java(TM) Plug-in1.4.1 on my Gentoo box so I'm not much help with the windows stuff lately. If you still can't get the sun java working you might try searching for the Microsoft VM on the web, or maybe it's on your install cd but you have to go in and select it under the internet items (add/remove windows components, in the control panel I think).

    Good luck!
