Nevertheless, as recommended (probably unofficially) by someone at IBM
help center, make a copy of your IBMTOOLS directory. Many of the drivers

It will at the very least give you hints as what driver goes to what

Subject: [Thinkpad] Installing Win98se on A31p and R31
I'm going to install Win98se (retail CD) on a new A31p (2653R3U) and an
R31 (2656L1U). I downloaded the 98se install instructions & device
driver matrix files from the IBM website, skimmed the readme files, and
I'm confused as to the exact list of files to install. If anyone has a
comprehensive file list and proper order for installation I'd appreciate
the info... it would save me a considerable amount of time.
Also, what is the difference between installing in ACPI mode vs
installing with the command line: "Setup C:\Win98\APMINST.INF" ?
Thanks in advance,
