Some views not mine, about Google. by Lostgallifreyan
Whatb interests me is that other people, independently are thinking as I do about this, to the point where the BBC sees fit to make national news of it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18777671

Newer Browser Needed for Some Web Sites by [email protected]
Hi, I am a big fan of Win98se, and I use FireFox browser V2.0.0.20. For 98% of my web browsing, this is fine. However, if I want to place an order at www.amazon.com, I have to use FireFox V3.6 in my WinXP computer. Note: FireFox V3.6 is incompatible with Win98. Do you know of...

.bkf files--How to access?? by [email protected]
Dear Friend, You can try a BKF Recovery Tool for when backup files get corrupt. But no need to worry anymore! Use Kernel for BKF and recover files and folders from corrupt BKF archives. All BKF files created with Backup Exec by VERITAS software, under Windows, Novell and Macintosh are fully...

Newer Browser Needed for Some Web Sites by [email protected]
Hi 98 Guy and everybody, UPDATE: On my "test" Win98se laptop, I set up internet access (DSL) and this time when I began to install KernelEx 4.5.2, the message, "Microsoft Layer for Unicode....." (required) appeared. I proceed to download the necessary components. When...

Irritating Youtube (about updates) by [email protected]
Youtube is ****ing me off. It keeps whining and complaining that my browsers are outdated, such as Seamonkey and Kmeleon. (Using win98se). So I use Firefox 3.x and now it's whining that my plugins need to be updated. On EVERY DAMN PAGE I OPEN. I do not get this warning on any other website. ...

X98. An experimental variant of W98 SE. by Lostgallifreyan
John (Gilliver), I think you've probably waited more than long enough. :) It's at http://lostgallifreyan.x10.mx It has USB support, ASPI, and a few other things the original needed as extras. 48 bit LBA support for hard disks is possible, but as my preferred way is NOT free to distribute, I...

Hi, I have a NEC desktop computer (1999) with Win98se. This has two physical HDDs (my modification), an internal "Master" HDD and a removable drawer for a "Slave" HDD. Note: I couldn't get this two HDD system to "work" using CS (cable select). I would like to add a 2 pole switch in...

XviD codec for W98 and Media Player Classic. by Lostgallifreyan
Any recommendations, bearing in mind this: I have one by 'Koepi' (XviD-1.1.0-Beta1-16012005 _Beta Release_) that plays fluently, but will not let me change aspect ratio to correct for badly made files. Removing it lets me see DivX but not XviD, and while it lets me change aspect ratio, it will...

IBM Thinkpad 760E Win98 Sound Driver by [email protected]
Hi, I was recently given an IBM Thinkpad 760E laptop, made around 1999. As I have done before with other old laptops, I formatted the HDD and installed Win98se. I didn't have trouble locating the display driver on the web, but never expected to have so much trouble finding the Win98...

installing MS Query tool by 98 Guy
This was posted on Saturday to alt.windows98. And again I shake my head and ask why people get off their ass and do a little bit of leg-work to figure out what the most USEFUL newsgroup to post to (which in this case because of a lack of traffic, is not alt.windows98). Binaryx wrote: does it...

Why does Wikipedia keep begging for foreign fonts? by [email protected]
Everytime I connect to Wikipedia, it keep getting asked to download additional (foreign) fonts. (My settings are to ASK, not automatically download addons). I'm going to English sites, so there is no reason to need the fonts. I never download them, I cant read foreign languages anyhow. But...

Automatically Bypass "New Hardware Found.." by [email protected]
Hi, I recently bought a Zonet ZUH2215V USB 2.0 PCI host controller for my Win98se/WinXP dual boot desktop. I didn't need a driver for this using WinXP. However, if I launch Win98, of course it is detected and a "New Hardware Found.." prompt appears. This device is not Win98...

Windows Mobile emulation on W98? by Lostgallifreyan
Does anyone know if Windows Mobile 2003, for ARM processors, can be emulated on W98 using KernelEx or otherwise? I bought a few programs when I could still see a Dell X50V screen, and if I could run them on W98 I'd do it.

Upgrading USB Port to 2.0 by [email protected]
Hi, I have a few Win98se laptops and desktop computers. I am a heavy user of USB flash drives, and it takes a lot of time to transfer very large files to/from these USB flash drives due to the older 1.0 USB ports. Is it difficult to upgrade the USB ports to 2.0?

My old PC (which cannot be upgraded beyond Windows 98 due to its limited specs) has Windows 98 and I want to clear down the entire disk and reinstall Windows 98. However, when I try to perform a Windows 98 Update the Microsoft website says it is no longer available or cannot respond (I can't...

Running an old DOS program by Industrial One
I am not a Win98 user, I use XP, but I'm crossposting to the 98 group because if there's anyone that would know about running old programs on modern machines, I hope it to be you guys. I was told that legacy DOS drivers are no longer made for modern mobos as of like 5 years ago, but I constantly...

Tablet machines and W9X? by Lostgallifreyan
I had an idea that a large-ish tablet might also have standard mouse and keyboard sockets, effectively making it a standard PC with fairly high screen resolutions. I need to run W98 SE on it, even if I also run other OS's on it. Is this possible, or are they all ARM CPU's and suchlike, not...
