Good idea ... thanks
I'm gonna leave the old computer as it is - Windows 98 is all I want out of that little thing. However, on the comp I had Windows 98 and Vector Linux 4.0 on, I wiped it - I want 95 on it. Now, for some reason, a (yes, legit) 95 OS disk isn't recognised, yet 98 is. So, I'm going to have to reinstall 98 (no probs) and then use that to restart in Dos, and then access the setup.exe file from the CD through dos commands - and then hope and pray that it'll work. Then, once that is done, wipe the partition with 98 on it, then install either Vector or Libranet Linux to work alongside Windows 95, and let Lilo do it's work. Complicated, but it should all work out for the best. ugh. -__-
