This problem has been making me rip my hair out in large clumps... and I've reformatted this ****ing thing about 17 times in one night solid. Whenever I install Windows 98SE, install DirectX 9.0c, and then the Unofficial Service Pack 3 and reboot, things seem to be fine, however some USB Devices won't work until I install the USB 2.0 stack (from USBStack.exe that U98SESP3 puts into /windows/system/). But now, the problem is, once I install that, and reboot, my Windows 98 hangs on boot if there are any USB Devices plugged in. If I leave them unplugged, it boots fine. Once I plug everything back in, I get an NTKERN.VXD error, and the devices still do not work. I fixed the NTKERN.VXD error by copying NTKERN.VXD from /VMM32 into /System, however, the hang on boot is still there. I have no way of uninstalling the USB2.0 Stack from Add/Remove Programs, and I have no clue how to solve my current problems. I think I might have f***ed up too by not deleting the right files/infs before installing USBStack.exe. I want to get rid of the thing entirely and fix this problem, and perhaps install NUSB instead, but I don't know where I should begin. *sigh* I'm really getting p***ed off and stressed with this thing. I've already spent an entire week trying to figure this out... time wasted when I could be actually using a functional system and doing something productive. Is there anyone out there who can help me sort this problem out?
