I just followed this method to install a SB0220 in a Slot1 system with W98. I did so without installing DirectX9 and can confirm it works without any problem whatsoever.
Cheers, thanks for testing this.
The only reason I'm including DirectX 9 is because Creative has it as a requirement on the Audigy 2 ZS driver CD, which my guide is based on. It's entirely possible that the drivers don't actually need it, or that it's only used by one of Creative's accompanying utilities like EAX Console or something. Since there is no way to tell for sure, I kept Creative's DirectX 9 requirement just to be on the safe side.
