Since I have been struggling with this project for over 1 year, and so many of you have supported that effort, I want to announce that as of last night I was finally able to achieve a WIN98SE install on my Del Latitude D630 laptop. Not perfect yet, but I actually have the installed Windows Screen which I was not able to achieve until now. This involved starting the setup on CDROM with the switches as follows: Setup /p i. That was the start. After the first reboot sequence, I had to go into the system.ini file and add the page length and buffer limitation settings. That is crucial to getting past the first reboot and finally then carefully sequencing the device settings which was a real bear! Once I got past all of that and finally arrived at a real Windows screen, I plugged in the U98SESP3.* driver and system upgrades, these immediate upgrades are essential to going further, since the expanded drivers opened up USB support functions. Now for the real bummer. This afternoon, the next day, my power supply shorted out, so I'm dead in the water having to wait and week or so to get a new one from Amazon.
