Update: Succesfully installed usb 2.0 drivers, added a mass storage driver later and I can now open usb sticks, saves me the hassle of using infrared or cd-rw's if I need to transfer files.

*Flips off infrared*

Will finish installing display and soundblaster drivers, then Ethernet.

The 3com ethernet driver wants secure32.dll but can't find it, any ideas where that could be ?


I used a third party drive for the mass storage btw, I think at least, from the web.

There are still some free dail-up internet services by the way, fun for irc and bulletin boards.

Update: finished installing 3com drive, had to select the win98 folder in the CD

the 3com diag fails to load the library however, so I will have to look into that.

I am not even sure if the t21 has that network mini-pci card installed, but there are only two driver downloads available, one doesn't do much and the second one is the 3com.

Should`ve just used a 40

Not worried about that, just doin it to see if I can can to the net through ethernet . Should be interesting

The only windows 98 pc we`ve had in the house used the phone line and AOL.

Installed 98 and I get the following error message....

Insufficient memory to initialize windows ( has 2 GB )

Too much memory I guess, try less, 1Gb, 500MB

I don't have any luck with the ethernet drives today, just installed display and audio drives, looks way better now ! the only 'problem' device left is the communication pci device.

The t-21 should use a sb-16/pro as a sound card, thus supporting pure dos games, the driver from the driver website is a crystal fusion driver, so I will have to test it out of it supports dos games with sb16/pro

Otherwise I could try dedicated sb16 drivers for either a dual boot dos or win98/95

I have Win 98SE running in a VM, no physical machine for it any longer. I also have Win 95 and DOS 6.2 VMs. Both those Windows VMs have internet and network access.

Even 500MB is probably too much for Win 98, try 64M.

I am running win98 with around 385 mb of ram

Doing a hd surface scan at the moment with scandisk, 3.4 hours :3

I should also be doing a scan on my two much older laptop hardrives from 1993, perhaps tomorrow.

They have internet probably because they are in a VM.
