i beleive they only need the disk just in case it needs some system files (which they sually do). Well thats what they techie that came over to install my mates cable some time ago did/needed. Most of the techies that come over to setup cable arnt too bad, you should be right with the piece of paper seiral number. But if you can find a orignal serial label or something then it would be good just in case :D

prank - they will need the win98 install disc incase some other protocols need to be added to TCP/IP or networking etc

you wont need a serial number as they will put the disc in, go to dial up properties and add the protocls from the disc there....
