However before doing that I have a few questions about the whole "patch Win98SE" topic:
1) Is the above mentioned Service Pack really the best to use? I mean there are a few other "unofficial upgrade packs/cd's" out there, this one seems to be the most active one (though I had to search a little for it). In fact the most "popular" pack seems to be the older version 2.1a, I'm wondering why? Did some guys made the pack up to 2.1a and then some other guys took over to make it to 3.13?
I actually only need the USB Mass Storage support and perhaps the 512 RAM fix since I mainly plan on playing old games on that machine so I'm wondering if the 2.1a isn't already good enough for me...
2) Since I just talked about USB support, how well is it supported? I mean are only USB sticks recognized or also external harddrives?
3) Are there some known driver issues with devices after applying the patch? I'm specifically interested in the Voodoo 5 5500 graphics card and the Diamond Monster MX300 sound card.
4) How safe/stable is the update process itself? I'm asking this because I tried several times to use the patch on a Virtual Machine and each time I either ended up with a bluescreen during the setup/reboot, some error messages during install or some errors on reboot.
Just recently I tried to install it again and he gave me an error message during the setup (I can only remember a message about being unable to register an .ocx file) and I ended up with the message "Windows protection error. You need to restart your computer". And the only way to access the OS again is with safe mode.
So I would like to hear if any of you guys had problems with installing it or maybe some issues afterwards.
