I restored an old PC to Windows 98 Second Edition to play games.

What I did was completely reinstall the operating system (Windows 98 Second Edition).

After the installation I installed Internet Explorer 6
Then when I try to run Windows Update it doesnt work.

Neither does the site h__p://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
(I dont want to post a live link thats why I put the __)

And the site wont even load.

My question is:
Does Microsoft still run the Windows 98 update site?

I did the same thing last year with the same PC, and it did work fine.

I dont know where else to ask. No one knows anything about Windows 98 anymore.
Please help.

QFT. Epic fail when I tried it before, the updating silently fails, when I come back to the web site, it just prompts me to install the same updates again!
