Hello Dear Michele,

Now the simplest way to have Widows98 working is to setup all windows.

From Widows98 cdrom copy Win98 Dir to HD and from dos8 or inside W98 run
setup from Win98 dir. This way you´ll have the correct device drivers
and the application migrated from source computer.

(to have Dos working, while booting, just after "Loadind Windows 98"
press F5.)

If you have room let win98 dir on HD, Widows98 allways ask for it.
but if have a working CDRom drive on this Box make everything from this

Some times I use this method, good luck!

Widows98 doesnt like cloning and Dolly
