This QuickRestore, to "factory", from the CDs, is far more involved than
the one from the D: partition. I don't really want to do it again. So

Thank you again for the assist.You mean primary? "Active" is the bootable primary on your HD0. A
primary is only required by the OS (in this case)
Drive letter assignment for DOS/Windows on a 2 HD system is like so.

Here is the question that I have, shouldn't other people selling Windows 98

Curious Question about windows update and windows update catalog.
When you download it using Automatic windows update.
It will install most of updates you chose at once.
But if you download each update using windows update catalog, you
have to install the updates separately.
Why is this?

My advice is as-is. It could trash your system.Are you sure?
... am running windows 98 on an alternate computer and the last time I shut it
down it took forever but then it finally shut down. When I tried to restart
it said I needed to use the system recover disks. When I use the system
recovery disks it says system recover aborted and that I may need to do a
fdisk when I type that in it says error reading fixed disk. I don't know how
to run in safe mode or operate out of DOS. I've never had to fix my own
computer but now I have to but don't have a clue of what to do. Any help
would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.How about some basic information from you.

You must be living right. I had a MIDI version of Miserlou, until I had to

Presently this computer is running IE6 and OE6 and is running pitifiully
slow, with a tendency to freeze and crash a lot. My question is threefold:
1) Do you think IE6 and OE6 is beyond the capabilities of this setup? Would
it be advisable to go back to IE5.5 SP-2 and the lesser version of OE?
2) Would an increase in RAM be of any benefit? If so, would anyone know what
type of RAM would be correct?

Trying to assist a friend in deep trouble. He has had no

easily but have no clue how to do this with Win98. Does
anyone know how to do this or where I can find the

Things improved partially after reinstalling parts of IE6 but still aren't
