I think its trying to use the microsoft installer which will need installing
on win98

look at the Windows 98 bit and you see what you need to install first

Where can I get Perl 5.6.x for Windows '98?

I did try ActivePerl, but am still having
problems with the installs (there is a package
to install called 'InstMsia.exe' that is
supposed to help, but doesn't).  However,
the ActivePerl 5.6.1 DOES work for my NT
