Windows 98 can request a password potentially at three different times.
One is a Windows network login, one is a user account login and the third would be a screen saver password.
I understand that the person that you got this from is deceased.
Otherwise this might be potentially touchy ground. Still might be.
At least you are honest about it and said it twice.
How far does it get? Does the system ever boot to the Windows desktop with the icons? If it does it is probably a screen saver password.
If not, what does the login box look like?
Is it somewhat rectangular in shape with a place only to type a login name and password or is it more squareish that looks like it cound have multiple users in a list box?
In the beginning there was the command line.
