Journal snatchitup's Journal: Windows 98 Is Dead

The title may sound like a Windows rant, but it isn't.

Basically, my son's Win98 machine will not boot up anymore. The machine is dual boot RH7.3 - Win98.

It's an HP Pavillion PII Celeron 466Mhz. 96Meg ram and 14 Gig Hard drive.

6 Gigs are used up by Linux.
==========
THe main purpose of the machine was to serve as a game machine for the kids and I.

Now, I have some options and decisions to take.

1. Should I just re-install WIn98?
2. Is the disk-drive too old, maybe I should replace it?
3. Should I go to a new OS for gaming such as Win2000?

These are all nagging questions.
