Re: Query concerning Windows ME and Win2000



Sounds like a good move. 

Do you get the operating system on a CD-ROM? If not, how do you restore the
OS if it becomes necessary? And does the CD-ROM load Win 98 into any
computer, or is it locked to the specific model of your Dell, the way Win
98 is on HP? 

I forsee that I will eventually be running a virtual machine, with several
OSs running, and I want a copy of Win 98 that I can run in a window. I
found out that my OEM copy of Win 98 will not do that.
