I have windows 98
You do mean Windows 98 SE I hope? If not there may be issues with the USB connections - I'm assuming these printers are USB connected?
Run Windows Update just in case, update your motherboard drivers from the manufacturers website. Do the printers say they are compatible with Win98? Check the manufacturers sites for the latest drivers.
It may be a particular version (or above) of Shockwave the install disk is asking for - great way to make a simple process complicated. No chance of the Shockwave player being on the CD itself? Use Windows Explorer to look at the CD contents.
What type of file was the epson driver download? An exe file? or zip? Uninstall any copies of the Epson drivers under 'Add & Remove Programs' in 'Control Panel'. Use Windows Explorer again to clear out any left over EPSON folders and then try the downloaded driver again. The exe file will probably create a new folder and unpack a bunch of files there. One of these will probably be 'setup' or 'install' but refer to the README file for instructions on how to install the drivers.
