Re: Generic Win98SE Installation & Setup Guide

Do what works best for you. I still don't recommend IE6 in Win98SE because of its serious bugs. I cannot think of a single scenario where IE6 is necessary over IE 5.5 or an improvement over Firefox 2.x. Then again, as you mentioned, nobody should be using Win98SE for browsing the net in 2021 anyway. …

Re: Best WinXP Video Card

Serious question: It seems like you guys are willing to use older ATI/AMD drivers to make things work, so why not older NVIDIA drivers? The v2XX.XX range work fine with the 500 series cards. 600 series and newer need v3XX.XX drivers. I've had good luck with v285.58 and my 560 Ti card.

Re: Is a Voodoo 2 worth the cost

AGP and WinXP - Any Real Advantage?

I've got a socket 754 Athlon 64 system with AGP and a 6800 GT. Right now it dual-boots Win98SE and WinXP. However, I think I'm going to replace the 6800 GT with a Quadro FX 3000 and just have it single-boot Win9x. I just can't think of a good reason to use AGP in a legacy WinXP box when PCI-E boards …
