Microsoft never actually released a service pack for 98, but there is an unofficial one available (Note: This is only for English Win 98 Second Edition). You can get it here (it's about 16 meg) which you can then put onto a CD and run on the standalone machine.

UNOFFICIAL Windows98 Second Edition Service Pack 2.0.2 (Freeware)

Microsoft has never released a service pack for Windows98 SE. But I made a Service Pack for Windows98 SE users. It contains all Windows98 SE updates from Windows Update site and more.

It is a self-extracting and self-installing pack like Microsoft's update files. Thus, you cannot choice individual files. However, the pack installs only required fixes for your system. Uninstallation is possible from Add-Remove Programs. However, I don't recommend uninstallation of the pack, if you don't face any problem.

This is *only* for WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION ENGLISH
It is also available at majorgeeks.com

Applies to:
Windows 98
Do not apply this to Windows 98 SE
Note: the IE4 and Outlook components can be installed on Win 95 or NT
