i dont know where else to ask these questions, so please excuse my
ignorance--i just installed a 6.4 hd from ebay, and am waiting for win95,
also from ebay that i had planed on installing on it and have a 2nd os-(new
xp pc) to play old pc games that wont work with xp (ive tried compatability
and everything-dont even ask-)--lo and behold, win98 is on the hard drive? id
like to run it, but im afraid to try to do anything as im not real sure what
im doing-either with this or when i get 95-i assume i would boot bios, and
tell it to make win98 drive primary?and just do that to run either--i already
see trouble though, as alot of things on the drive reference "C:" drive,
while the new drive is "G"-ive already started going thru and changing
everything to "G" and watch the icons change to win98 things, so i hope im on
the right track-any help or sites/documents i can reference?
