Why does Wikipedia keep begging for foreign fonts? by [email protected]
Everytime I connect to Wikipedia, it keep getting asked to download additional (foreign) fonts. (My settings are to ASK, not automatically download addons). I'm going to English sites, so there is no reason to need the fonts. I never download them, I cant read foreign languages anyhow. But...

Automatically Bypass "New Hardware Found.." by [email protected]
Hi, I recently bought a Zonet ZUH2215V USB 2.0 PCI host controller for my Win98se/WinXP dual boot desktop. I didn't need a driver for this using WinXP. However, if I launch Win98, of course it is detected and a "New Hardware Found.." prompt appears. This device is not Win98...

Windows Mobile emulation on W98? by Lostgallifreyan
Does anyone know if Windows Mobile 2003, for ARM processors, can be emulated on W98 using KernelEx or otherwise? I bought a few programs when I could still see a Dell X50V screen, and if I could run them on W98 I'd do it.

Upgrading USB Port to 2.0 by [email protected]
Hi, I have a few Win98se laptops and desktop computers. I am a heavy user of USB flash drives, and it takes a lot of time to transfer very large files to/from these USB flash drives due to the older 1.0 USB ports. Is it difficult to upgrade the USB ports to 2.0?

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...

Strange problem with Firefox - all links point back to same page by 98 Guy
This is Firefox 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...
