Default Windows 98 Welcome Wav file

I recently upgraded from Win 98 to Win XP and miss the peppy rockstyle
Welcome Wav in Windows 98. I tried to locate the file on my upgraded
computer in the old win 98 files but was unsuccessful. I tried Microsoft.Com
help, but Win 98 is not supported anymore. Does anyone know how I can get
the Win 98 Welcome Wav file? Thanks in advance for your help.

It's named WELCOM98.WAV, and the usual path is:
C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\WELCOME\WELCOM98.WAV

It is on the W98 CD. I think the one you are looking for is called:
logon.wav and it plays when W98 opens.

W98: Win98_48.cab File
W98SE: Win98_54.cab File

WELCOM98.WAV is in the following CAB file(s). I'm pretty sure it's the one
you want. Starts with a gong and has a heavy bass line.

Win98 -- Win98_49.cab
Win98SE -- Win98_55.cab

The one when you log on, or the one that happens when you first install
Windows and there is a "Welcome to Windows" tutorial involved.
