Question Viewing Detailed System Logs in Win 98 (attempt 2)

Is there a way to view a detailed system log in Windows 98? I'm not talking Temporary Internet File folders, but more specific logs, almost like an Event Viewer.
I found a log hidden in the system folder, but it just tells me when the computer was logged in and logged out.

Windows 98 doesn't really have an audit system like Windows NT/2k/XP/2k3.

The eventviewer is only available in the stated OS, not Win9x.

go to start-->Programs-->Accessories--> System Information. Or you could also launch it from word. It brings up a load of information about IRQ and such.

currently looking at a litescribe drive at staples, due to its ability to label the CD shortly after being burned.
