Re: Building a vintage pentium system...

in PC Emulation
As for OS, definitely go with Win95C (OSR 2.5 I think). You can find a copy of that rather easily. :) It will be much faster than 98 on such a machine. 98 is slower than 95C? That's news to me. I would think the primary difference would only be 98's improved stability. Anyway, if speed is a concern …

Re: Building a vintage pentium system...

in PC Emulation
Socket 5? Looks like you'd be fine with Socket 7. http://support.intel.com/support/processors/sb/CS-001826.htm I'm not familiar with any particular advantage that one Intel chipset might have over another, so long as it supports the features you want. The graphics card you want will depend on what …

Mobos with SDRAM and AGP?

in PC Emulation
I've still got quite a bit of SDRAM and some fairly nice AGP cards lying around that I'd like to put to good use. SDRAM, alas, seems to have vanished from use some time ago, and AGP doesn't look too common anymore either. Could someone please suggest a good motherboard that takes both SDRAM and AGP …

Re: Use DosBox NOT Virtual PC

DosFreak wrote: Sorry but it's true. If you cannot use DosBox for some reason then use GameTap (bleh) Gee, is GameTap not comparable to DOSBox? I haven't gotten around to trying it yet myself, but I had thought they would surely go that way.

Re: About Microsoft Word 5...

in DOS
Well, I've seen something like that for WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS at http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/graphicsmode.html , but of course that is probably specific to WP5.1. There may be a similarly-specific driver for Word. That site also suggests http://www.tamedos.com/ .

Re: Help! I've been infected by rootkit!

in Milliways
Er, what? Sysinternals has been carrying on in its merry way ever since the buyout. Very little has changed. And how exactly would the "latest rootkits" be fundamentally different from other rootkits? (Actually, now that I look at it, there's no longer any sign of their Windows 98 NTFS driver, but …

Re: Help! I've been infected by rootkit!

in Milliways
The first rootkit doodad that comes to mind is RootkitRevealer from http://www.sysinternals.com . Anyway, I think what might be helpful here is the Filter Check Tool. I think that generally the problems that fixes are a little more lower-level, but maybe it's the case here. http://www.cdr-zone.com/ …

Re: DosBox 0.70 and img files

Is the read-only attribute set on the IMG file itself? (This is quite likely if the IMG file used to be on a CD-ROM.) Or perhaps you are running DOSBox as a user that does not have write-priviledges for the IMG file?

Re: Willing to run WordPerfect on DOSBOX/LINUX, with Japanese font

in DOS
The thing about WordPerfect is that even the English versions use an extended character set that includes Japanese characters. I doubt it contains much kanji, though, and I really doubt you'll have much luck trying to directly import a "modern" Unicode or Shift-JIS document. Long, long ago, I had a …
