I've Come Very Late to the Party

It looks like you're creating vastly improved versions

of 98.

I've got to resolve a serious problem, maybe one of

you can help me.

My dad purchased a Gateway desktop many years

ago. Each time it broke I fixed it. He doesn't use

the internet. (Hard to believe, I know!) He sits in

front of this horrific old desktop everyday typing

letters with Word 97. Occasionally, he'll use Excel.

The last time he asked me to fix this power hogging

monster I said no. I told him I would build a new

desktop and install his old software. I'm building

a MicroATX desktop, which is all he needs.

Abandoning 98 was a great relief for most folks.

Unless Microsoft creates something better than

Vista, XP may be looked back upon as their most

stable operating system.

It would be great if I could install a "souped up"

version of 98 that would be more compatible with

the new Gigabyte mobo I'm using, as well as all

the other new hardware. I see a list of patches,

updates, etc. It would take me a long time to

really understand what you guys have done with

this old system.

Can someone point my browser to a complete

package I should download, or a list of updates

and patches that I could slipstream and burn

onto a CD.

Thanks guys!

The problem remains, with new computers that you may not find drivers for w98.

You will find more info about these issues here
