Just Got A Labtop With 98 On It

The general idea is discussed in "Boot with GRUB" by Wayne Marshall, which tells how to create a floppy disk that boots grub, including a configuration file. Backups and Moving Windows to a New Disk (for Dual-Boot) I have no CD-ROMs for the Windows operating system as installed by this laptop (in particular, I don't have a CD-ROM Must use floppy.okay......well how do i use the floppy then! The most stressing applications for wireless cards are the ones that do security scanning/auditing, like Kismet and Aircrack. (They also essentially require the use of GNU/Linux; I don't know anyone who

In Linux you can prevent panning directly. Now install more up-to-date software. Disabling "panning.sys" in config.sys (run "msconfig" for an easy way to do this) doesn't seem to help.

The display configuration doesn't allow for other virtual terminals while in graphics mode, and the shutdown display gets odd, but this no negative impact on normal use. Whereas, the XP and especially the Vista machines I access occasionally are comparatively slow even on their dual core CPUs. In fact, this turned into a little game/project for me, and I learned a few things along the way.

I'm sure there are more sources of information.

This will give us more disk space for good stuff.

Since around 50% of all security vulnerabilities (including the ones we don't know about yet!) are buffer overflows, this makes Fedora Core a safer OS than most other operating systems -- GNU/Linux Install If you ever decide to do a dual-boot install, remember the golden rule: install Windows first. Continue the conversation in the comments below or with Matthew Dunn on Twitter or Facebook. Update: The wireless card works fine.

This makes using fun free games like Battle for Wesnoth inaccessible on Windows while there's no separate attached screen. (Battle for Wesnoth works just fine on Linux). So clearly, Windows 98 isn't a choice for any machine built in the last year. I bought a little memory, swapped in a bigger hard drive (no cost to me), and bought an inexpensive wireless card. (In my case, the original laptop also had a power

It's easy to buy a card that won't work easily and create lots of headaches for yourself...

They also noted that there is an open source software driver for Atheros, though with a limitation (it doesn't include all code).

Fun! That's because Windows is fundamentally rude; it assumes that there are no other competing products, and it simply overwrites whatever boot process you had before. Remove teh floppy disk from the drive and then restart your computer.2. If you're in a war, instead of throwing a hand grenade at the enemy, throw one of those small pumpkins.

This is really a nasty problem -- what's the point of having a "feature" that makes software unusable? Clear the option to Search for new floppy disk drives each time your computer starts. I must admit however that it is becoming harder and harder to surf the net because so many websites insist on running scripts that are only compatible with XP and above. I have Nero smartstart for my burning program.

Now I swapped in a much bigger hard drive I snagged from a laptop (the other laptop works, but it doesn't support CardBus cards). If you use Cygwin and add rxvt, add it to the desktop so it's easier to start. If you use instant messaging (including IRC), get Gaim.

Can anyone offer me any suggestions how I can make it run win98? I had a hard drive with more space, and I could give Windows a larger partition while still giving lots of space to GNU/Linux. Finally, under Windows 98, a hard drive partition formatted with FAT32, the default file system, can't exceed 127.5 GB.
