I have agonized over and purchased most of the components for my overkill Windows 98 SE build (socket 775). As I understand Windows 98 SE supports installing directly from CD, so I don't think I need a floppy drive. I will need a CD/DVD drive for OS installation, loading drivers, and of course games. Does selection here matter or can I just pick whatever is convenient/cheap? Does a SATA drive through an IDE adapter work just as well as a native IDE drive? It's unlikely I will ever burn CDs/DVDs from this system, I just need to read them.
