  1. Does DOS have similar issues if it's installed with large amounts of RAM?
  2. Is RLoew's patch supposed to be applied after installation? So will I need to also get a 512MB stick aside from the 2x 1GB ones to install 98 on?
  3. Would alternate RAM patches such as http://tinyurl.com/o5um7qm have the same effect as PLoew's patch? And also to all the people that have been talking about CPU support, according to my research, only 98FE had a GHz limit, and also since 98 only supports one core, the second would probably just remain unused without any stability problems. Edit: Also I forgot to add that the PC will include a ATi Radeon 9800 XT card which appears to have 98 and XP drivers.
  4. I'm using separate Hard Drives because they're rather old so if one of them were to fail, it would just take down one OS instead of all three. But if I were to use multiple HDDs, would the default bootloader that comes with XP be able to recognize and boot from the other hard drives containing DOS and 98?
  5. I am going to be building a multi-boot PC with some OSes older than XP in the near future. I've used n-lite to remove all the junk that I don't need from my XP install CD and when I got to the unattended screen, I realized that the most attended option automates the text part of installation and since this is a multi-boot system with other OSes, XP would have to be installed last. So if I had three drives for each separate OS, is there any way I could get it to install onto the one that is unallocated or will it do that automatically?
  6. I'm wanting to build a 'vintage' PC to experience some older OSes. I'd like to install MS-DOS (with Windows 3.11), 98SE and XP on a triple boot on multiple HDDs with the following hardware: ECS P4M800PRO-M V2.0 Motherboard Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 (2.8GHz) 2x 1GB Corsair DDR2 sticks 4GB Segate Medalist (HDD for DOS) 80GB WD HDD (for Windows 98) 320GB WD HDD (for XP) 2x CD drives and a floppy PCI IDE\SATA card in case I ever need more HDDs Can anyone see any potential problems that I can encounter with this setup? (I am aware of 98’s compatibility problem with 512+ MB of ram and problems with 137+ Gb HDDs)
  7. I'd like to make an automated installation of Office 2003 updates and I can't seem to find any information on the Office 2k3 SP1 and 2 silent switches. So does anyone know what they are?
