How do I get Everquest to play?


I asked a previous question re not being able to access an online game(Everquest) after I upgraded my DirectX ver from 8.1 to 9b.

The game ran fine with 8.1 (my brothers comp).

After I installed ver 9b in his comp, we keep getting a message saying you need at least 8.1 installed.

Answer to this question previous (Raymond) was that we should upgrade my brothers comp to Win ME or XP, because ver 9b needs at least those to run properly. Well that's untrue because I run Everquest just fine on my comp with ver 9b, and using Win 98SE. My brother also has Win 98SE, so there is no need for him to change his OS.

The problem is the DirectX itself. It seems that his comp is not recognizing that DirectX is installed.

When we DL ver 9b, or ver 8.1, we get a "download successful" message. However we can't find a DirectX folder anywhere.
