[QUOTE=weedougie;2050060]Have you considered PCLinux?
This can be run from the cd and has Firefox as well as open office.
If it runs OK then you could try an install.[/QUOTE]Er, no I hadn’t. What worries me is the amount of software designed for it that is only Windows compatible. It’s the wife’s anyway, and she’d throw a wobbler if it wasn’t a familiar system.
[QUOTE=bevills1;2050179]Do you have Win98SE or the original Win98? The simplest solution would be to get another PCMCIA wireless adapter being sure to select 1 that has support for your OS. At http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Description=pcmcia+adapter there are some as low as $16 plus shipping, but many have Win98SE support but not original Win98 support.
You might also give Win2k a try if you already have it, but I wouldn’t go out and buy it just to try. I installed Win2k on an old Compaq Armada 366 MHZ with 192 MB RAM, and it runs not significantly slower than Win98SE.[/quote]It’s 98SE.
Thanks, but the problem is the PCMCIA [B]port[/B] itself that needs installing, not the PCMCIA card.
I think that I will give 2000 a shot if I can convince her to let me keep fiddling with it.
[QUOTE=bevills1;2050179]However, note all older laptops below 1 GHZ CPU will be slow compared to newer, faster ones regardless of OS.[/QUOTE]Um… yeah, I kinda knew that.
