here, no problem,
the cdrom is recognize

I enter

d: --> to go to the cdrom and no problem
dir --> no problem

cd win98 --> and i have invalid directory
the directory exist in fact (this is the same with all directory
idem with a direct command d:\win98\install

I suspect that the .iso image is made with "isolevel 4".
Such an image CANNOT be accessed properly if the bootdisk uses MSCDEX.

You need to either find a way to burn it with "isolevel 3" or (suggested) replace MSCDEX with SHSUCDX:

Thank you for your response,
I will look this

(what i don't say, is i test it in a virtual machine )

and to continue,
I want to put a command at the end of the boot in the autoexec.bat

where to put a command like "t:\win98\install" for example
to, for this example, the install of win98 begins automaticaly after the boot initialling
(see the files attached)
