Did you find system.1st (that is {uno}st not lst) in the root directory?
As it is a hidden file it may not have been copied from your original
You do need a system.dat for the gui to operate properly hence copying
/system.1st to /windows/system.dat
I am assuming file names do not change between english and italian
versions of win98.
