*1- Install Windows 98 SE (with our without 98lite).
2- Install IE 6.0 SP1.
3-Install DirectX (9.0c).
4- Install all latest drivers of your hardware
*5- Install MS Office.(And any other programs like norton/etc...)
6- Install SE SP 2.0.
8- Install 98lite to remove any features.
*9- Install critical updates from WindowsUpdate.(Make sure you have your icon cache increased as your icons could change and be unable to change them back)
*10- Install 982ME Latest Version.
this is the method i use:
installing ie6 before anything is crucial as some programs may need the newer ie files,next comes directx as some hardware might complain like a soundcard and you'll have lower sound quality then usual or a message will come up about directx,also it is best to install the sp before you use 98lite so that the sp updates all files instead of just the ones you have installed,also doing it this way allows you to reinstall those features with the newer files rather than with the old files,it is recomended to install the windows updates then install the latest version of 982ME.this is the method i use as i've had trouble with gapes installation method
I'd recommend a reboot after installing Office, before SE SP 2.0, should prevent any erroneous errors like the ones I got, causing Office2000 to claim registry errors and .dll not found/registered -- which caused Office to have to reinstall itself
