Running an old DOS program by Industrial One
I am not a Win98 user, I use XP, but I'm crossposting to the 98 group because if there's anyone that would know about running old programs on modern machines, I hope it to be you guys. I was told that legacy DOS drivers are no longer made for modern mobos as of like 5 years ago, but I constantly...

Tablet machines and W9X? by Lostgallifreyan
I had an idea that a large-ish tablet might also have standard mouse and keyboard sockets, effectively making it a standard PC with fairly high screen resolutions. I need to run W98 SE on it, even if I also run other OS's on it. Is this possible, or are they all ARM CPU's and suchlike, not...

MinGW. GCC on W98? by Lostgallifreyan
Does anyone know of a Win32 binary that does work on W98? I found a late 7Z package that claimed x86 support intended for Win32, but it would not run in 'DOS mode'. Meaning it couldn't even tell I was in a Windows session! :) I have the Dev-CPP-supplied MinGW but it's older, and I need to try a...

Making Win98 work on the internet by 98 Guy
First, Alan, I'm curious as to why you chose to post your question to this group: microsoft.public.win98.internet.windows_update I ask because that newsgroup has had no traffic for many months, if not years. I notice that you are posting via giganews. Does giganews not carry the much more...

Strange problem with Firefox - all links point back to same page by 98 Guy
This is Firefox 2.0.0.20. I typically have many Firefox instances or windows open at any one time (5 to 10 maybe). I tend to open a link "in a new window" instead of opening in a new tab or just following the link in the same window. I do this because it's faster to close the new instance or...

Transitioning FF - Opera - niggles .... by pedro
Certain websites have been causing me progressively more issues when using FF (2.0.0.20). I noted in another thread that someone was running Opera 10.63 so I installed that, and configured it to hopefully do my bidding. Unfortunately, there are two areas where I cannot for the life of me get it...

Will FF 4.x run on Win98 with kernal-ex? I have the last of ver. 3.x installed, but that annoying unfixable bug that causes it to go into offline mode quite often really ****es me off. I dont want more FF bloat, so I wont even consider anything over ver 4 (which may not run in 98 anyhow). Then...

Basically, I think that my root certificates (and probably yours too - if you use Firefox 2.0.0.20) need to be updated. Anyone know how to do this?
