Windows Explorer in Windows 98 help pleassssee

This is driving me crazy. I know it's something simple, but I tried everything and couldn't fix it. In my Windows Explorer in Windows 98, it used to be where there were two sections, one on the left side and one of the right. The left side had "Folders" and the right side had "name", "size", "type", etc. You would be able to go from "C:, D:, My computer" etc. on the left side and it would change, only the right side would change. Now, I only get the right side and the left side just has a big area that says "C:" or whatever folder I was in. Does anyone know how to change it back? Help would be MUCH appreciated.

I don't have a "options" choice.

Yes, this option is selected, but I have the same problem.

View -> Explorer Bar -> Folders

That's what it is in XP; there may be a similar option in 98.
