Dial-up networking missing from Network machine

My friend just purchased a second-hand PC from his workplace. It's only ever been used on a network, so I've installed a 56K PCI modem for him. Problem is, the IT department appear to have completely removed dialup networking from this machine. Going into Add/Remove programs and clicking on the Windows Setup tab lists nothing - no communciations, accessibility or internet options to install or uninstall. This is obviously why the option to switch from a LAN to a dialup setting in the Internet Options/Connections in IE is greyed out. I downloaded dun14-98.exe from the Microsoft website and it said that it had installed, but to no avail. The machine runs Win98 and the only CD-ROM I have is Win98SE - it won't let me restore the settings from that.

Any ideas how I can fix this issue? Thanks

Thanks, but as mentioned previously, clicking on the Windows Setup tab in Add/Remove displays a blank box - there is no Communications option to choose.

that the Dial-up networking icon doesn't appear in 'My Computer'

will I be able to reinstall Dial-up networking, or will I have to do a complete reinstall of Windows?
