  1. or use dos ramdisk like SRDISK, or write own pre-himem dos driver like BURNMEM, which will hide selected memory regions from himem via int15, or mod open-source himem XMGR for exclude some addresses... or use himemx or old himem from msdos, which [can be] limited first 64 MiB.

  2. yes, it is teoretically POSSIBLE.

    0) you must have patched IO.SYS and/or IFSHLP (but i can not remember what exactly patch need here...);
    1) you must dynamically load/unload properly version IFSHLP and/or network drivers by DEVLOAD.COM;
    2) you must use my ACPIOFF patch for win98 and boot to Command Prompt mode only, not direct to GUI;
    3) for solve 2) usb handoff issue after win98 exit, you must use true PS2 kbd and mouse.

    my screen went blank

    can u check that ur 1660ti is support legacy videos modes (EGA 640x350 and lower)?
    look as my problem with 1070....
    i partially solved it by patching vdd.vxd, and can boot to 9x gui, run games like Worms, but here remain (other?) problem with opening in MSDOS window... and i can NOT debug it even with softice. :(

    maybe isn't compatible with WPA codification or something.

    WPA/WPA2 is not related with HW and low layer drivers. for work with WPA/WPA2 u need just good Wireless Supplicant, as Odyssey.
    with Odyssey's help i have succesfully connect to my router with WPA2-AES and that even work with absolute alien's for 9x device - USB dongle on RT2870.
    it means, that here can not be problems with WPA if ur HW is working properly.
    so please, check your hardware in a normal operating system, and only then think about buying new card.

    i don't know do it

    - boot to 9x normal mode,
    - make W2KDISTR folder on ur 9x fat32 partition,
    - copy I386 folder from W2K setup disk to W2KDISTR,
    - make W9XBAK folder on ur 9x fat32 partition,
    - reboot to safe/plain/pure/clean msdos mode command prompt only,
    - rename ur 9x WINDIR to MYW9X,
    - reboot machine,

    - cd W2KDISTR\I386,
    - run WINNT.EXE

    - in started w2k installer, select ur fat32 part to install, and say NO FORMAT,
    - if installer ask u for install to C:\MYW9X or C:\WINDOWS - force install to C:\WINNT
    - do installation to final, check, that ur w2k work normal (it "highly likely" :) that u get non-work EHCI USBs... this can fix later),

    - copy ur backed IO.SYS COMMAND.COM from W9XBAK to C:\ (with repl if need)
    - open C:\BOOT.INI in notepad,
    - find section and string

    [Boot Loader]

    change "Default=" string to


    - find section and string

    [Operating Systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000"

    add under this

    C:\="Microsoft Windows 98"

    - reboot machine,

    - on any next boot, now u will asked for select OS,
    - if u do all properly - u now will boot to 9x by default,
    - and now u must see pure MSDOS 7 prompt,
    - copy ur backed MSDOS.SYS CONFIG.SYS AUTOEXEC.BAT from W9XBAK to C:\ (with repl if need)
    - rename MYW9X to ur old WINDIR,

    - reboot again and check dualboot function...

    even i try without a pass, why isn't on odessy program, on wireless list?

    in Odyssey:
    1) go to Adapters item on left pane, and add ur Atheros in list
    2) after this, go to Networks item on left pane, and add ur Hotspot here,
    3) after this, go to Connection item on left pane, and make connection.
