Default What Drivers?

I just re-installed windows98, along with what I thought was all necessary drivers, however when I boot up Im still getting "Found New Hardware Devices" and when windows looks for the drivers for these it is unable to locate them.
I would pull them from my resource cd but I dont know what they are! One of the messages finds: "PCI System Management Bus" and the other finds "Unknown Device". I previously removed these from Device Manager (since reinstallation) so thats why I get the messages every time I boot up. Does anybody know what they could be and where to find the appropriate drivers? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks again!

the reason it keeps finding it is because you removed it from DM. When removing it from DM and a reboot it will be found all over again. The only way to make it not do this is by going into the properties and choosing disable in DM... however, I wouldn't suggest that. Sounds to me like you need to install your chipset drivers for the MBD.
