Find out the board's chipset and go to the chipset manufacturer's site
and see if they have any drivers for a dead OS.

As mentioned, it's a dead operating system. Its memory management
sucked.

By the way. You can make Windows XP look exactly like Windows SE,
gradient title bars and everything. That might be true for Vista
too. Anybody know? The difference is under the hood.

Dose anyone know if the drivers are there for win 2000? Like as Win XP?

If I install 2000 will I have to find drivers as the same for 98?

Thanks

The Dell page isn't too clear on what the chipset is. It can either
be a 865G or 865PE. The "G" provides integrated graphics.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm#1119251

Win98SE graphics driver for 865G (released at end of 2003)

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/fil...=Windows*+98+SE&lang=eng&strOSs=18&submit=Go!

Further down the page here, is the INF update for 865 chipsets.
That would be the chipset drivers (usually installed first).

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/fil...=Windows*+98+SE&lang=eng&strOSs=18&submit=Go!

You can still find stuff like that. I installed Win98SE,
more as a joke than anything, on my new Core2 board,
and it all worked fine. I did set the .ini file, so
Win98SE could only see 512MB of the memory, but that
was the only hack out of the ordinary. I did that, after
the first stage of installation, using another OS. I didn't
have a problem with the processor speed (there is some
bug about the measured clock speed of the processor, but
it didn't seem to affect me - I don't know right off
hand, what the frequency limit is).

The list of Win98SE drivers may not appear on Dell's support site, but
they are probably still available from Dell's FTP site
(ftp://ftp.us.dell.com) ... provided that you know the names of the
files.

For example, here are what appear to be Win98 drivers:
ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/video/ATIDw98.exe
ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/video/128RGW98.EXE
ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/video/ATI98RGE.EXE
ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/video/DIATNT98.EXE
ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/video/dmw95_98.exe

I have found that the Intel chipset drives for the Dell 4600 do not
work under Win98SE and are ok for WinME. So they give your the choice
of going backward or upgrading your OS to Win2K or WinXP.

If you cant get 98 drivers from the mfr website, try ME, then 95, and
if desperate even win3.1 drivers work at times. Then just google, try
whatever you can find. Dont overlook generic drivers and drivers for
similar products. I've yet to find much hardware that wont work, but
yes it can take several tries sometimes.
