Hi folks. My dad is thinking about getting broadband installed,
but I notice, that many of the ISPs state 98SE as the minimum
requirement, as does the Voyager105 CD, which I presume is the
freebie supplied by most isps. His PC is old, P3 450Mhz 128Mb
RAM, and runs the original version of 98 (fully patched). Is he
going to have to upgrade his OS? I notice though, that Tiscali
doesn't require 98SE, but I've advised him not to take this
route! what's the score with 98?

Thanks, Alex.

Another thing to think about is M$ have withdrawn all support for 98,
so no updates or security fixes

They have? ... I was sorting a 98 (not SE) machine on Tiscali (USB)
the other day and not only was it working (Tiscali / 98 / USB) but I
applied all the Windows updates (10 critical+ N other) with no

This machine is I'm on now is 98SE and also still updates .. ;-)

Now I haven't tried updating a 95 machine for a while ....

All the best ..
