The urge to build yet another Windows 98 unit was too great, especially with a pentium 4 cpu which I've never done.
This quite frankly was a royal "pita" involving stripped standoffs, a case too small, and a SB Live that just wanted to
make me miserable for the fun of it. In the end it worked out though, hence the specs:
Pentium 4 socket 478 2.4ghz.
512MB DDR400 (only getting 333mhz cuz of the cpu)
Quadro4 900XGL 128MB (another reason for the build)
Live! 5.1 SB0100 (strangely the install cd installed the vxd drivers w/o any options offered)
30gb IDE HD with Star Tech IDE SATA converter
Samsung DVD burner SATA
Gigabyte case (cheaply made but never used & paid only 25 bucks via FB market)
Windows 98SE of course!
