The standard way to do a backup copy of an OS CD is:
1. Make a CD-image from the CD in the drive (using UltraISO/WinISO/ISObuster/Nero/whatever).
2. Use an ISO-image editing tools to extract all files from the iso into a folder.
3. Save the boot-sector of the ISO the same way.
4. Now make any modifications you need to do, and work the same backwards, and burn the ISO-image to CD.

Please note that making a copy of a CD, for other than backup purposes is not permitted under most EULAs.

It has problems copying files from the CD, and the CD is in perfect shape.

Errors copying files from CD, check to make sure disk is in drive and then try again...it's as though there's something that scrambles the laser on certain files and prevents it from copying ( ;) copy protection ;) )

3. Save the boot-sector of the ISO the same way. 


How do I find out the boot sector?

Make an ISO copy of the CD - that will do an ASPI-based (as opposed to file-based) copy, and will retain copy-protection.

Open the ISO in an ISO-editor, and extract the boot-sector.

Older versions of UltraISO may not be fully compatible with making images from protected CDs. The newest version is 7.21, and I've seen no limits to it so far. Please upgrade your UltraISO to the newest version, and checkback if you are able to do it. :)

another way you "could" attempt to do it is use:
xcopy (cdrom):\*.* C:\WIN98SE\*.* /E /I /V
and see if that will work. I know when it gives me a hard time sometimes doing it in WinXP that's what I end up doing and it usually works.

*NOTE*
You have to do that from a command prompt, if you have the Powertoy "CMDHerePowerToy", you can just right click the drive your Win98 cd is in and bring up a CMD window that way. Otherwise use the run box and put in "CMD" w/o the quotes, then press enter and then type in "CD (CDROM):" to get to the cdrom drive that has your cd in it. From there follow what I said above. Also, note that you need to change "(cdrom)" to represent your actual cd roms drive letter.

***EDIT***
I should mention too that I used "C:\WIN98SE\" as an example, you can use whatever drive you want to save it to by substituting that drive letter for the one I used above.
Matthew 22:36-40

"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?" And he, (Jesus,) said to him, "You shall love the Lord Your GOD with all your heart and all your soul and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets."

My two cents:
1) I have never seen, either heard of a "copy protected" Win 98 CD, and I've seen quite a few of them
2) Most probably it is a "mechanical" problem, like misalignment of laser or whatever.
3) Try this proggy (freeware):
CDCHECK
CDCheck is a utility for the prevention, detection and recovery of damaged files on CD-ROMs with an emphasis on error detection. With CDCheck you can check your CDs and discover which files are corrupted. By using the program proactively, you can insure that your data on CD-ROMs are safe -- before it's too late! CDCheck provides the following features: readability verification, binary compare, CRC file creation (and verification) and file recovery.

It will tell you what the actual problem is, most probably will let you copy the tricky files, if not post again with results from CDCHECK and we'll see what we can do to help you further.

The command above will left behind (if any) all hidden files (/h missing), and will reset the Read only file attribute (/k missing), try this instead:
copy32 [cdrom]:\*.* C:\WIN98SE\*.* /i /s /e /r /v /k /f /c /h
Note:
Xcopy is just a redirection to XCOPY32
/s and /e could be condensed in just /e, but as Nick Rage put it,

We even made it easy to remember..
