Looking for an old OS ...

Anybody out there have a clue where I might be able to score (hopefully, cheaply) a W98se disk or a "cached" download of the SE upgrade?

I still need to keep my old system functional to be able to access stuff I have on Zip disks (it has a Zip drive), so I can't really just yank the HD out, but I'm finding the fact that it just has W98 on it problematic, because I can't get it to do a lot of stuff that needs W98se. When SE came out, I guess it was a free download upgrade from Microsoft, but I've not been able to find a W98se disk (for less than a lot of money, that is). I'm hoping that somebody out there might know of an archive that would have a cached version of the upgrade, or a version they could burn to a CD for me. It's amazing what a W98 system can't do that a W98se system can ... and I'd like to be able to make some of that stuff happen on my old computer!

Thanks ...
