exFAT is a file system that was released long after Windows 98 was discontinued. Those drivers will not help you there.

There has been some discussion of this over at the MSFN forums.

the very first introduction of exfat had built in backwards compatibility with fat32 systems. However you couldn't write a file over 4tb in dos windows nor use disk and defrag utilities on exfat partitions. That patch on xp was replaced and there were patches for vista+ the original has since disappeared.
There are a few places left in the world to get it last seen 2018 I may try fetch it and confirm.

here is a site with patches but they may be replaces with the security update shit that stopped fat32 accessibility http://greyghost.mooo.com/windows-exfat/

I downloaded many of these years ago from the MS page.
Still have them backed up..
