Oh no .It seems that win 98 is not all its cracked up to be
I decided to do the upgrade properly, so reformated the drive and installed win 98.
Firstly it seems that win98 has trouble remembering where drivers are .I have had to reinstall my printer driver 3 times. Is this a known bug.

Also since changing to win 98, my machine seems slow, like its short of memory (Pentium 200 MMX,32Mg Ram, 1.5 Geg hard drive which is lees than half full running Office 97, a scanner,Outlook, ).I would have used memmaker in win 95 to help but can,t find a tool with win98 which will fine tune memory settings.
I find your article extremmely helpful ( best part of the Mag )

Thanks Pete Macdonald
