Im new here but for me Windows 98 SE is not a new experience at all. This was my first OS and still the favorite one but now I have a huge dilemma:
I want to install Windows 98 SE on my laptop which is Acer Aspire 5738Z. If further hardware specific things are required I can give them.
The reason why I want this? Maybe because Im crazy nerd but hell I love retro software and games! Now Im using here Windows XP SP3 x86. There are a few problems although:
1. Drivers, drivers, drivers... Any advice where I can get them for 98? With XP was fairly easy.
2. Installation - I'm a little bit afraid about MS DOS and Windows 98 installations because my hardware at all and my skills at second place. I can install every Windows but in a virtual machine the feeling is different. Is there exists any 98 SE install which can be installed without first installing DOS? And how I can wipe out my C drive before the actual 98 install?
3. How I can pass the limits of Windows 98 - for example RAM size, etc...?
4. Which programs to install/to not install? KernelEX is a must for sure.
5. Any other advices?
Any advice will be appreciated and sorry if I sound like complete noob but I want this thing on my laptop... Also sorry about my spelling because English is not my native language.
And by the way my real name is Georgi (in English George). Nice to meet you all!
