Do a search on the forums for Native USB. Some
clever person figured out how to "transplant" the
Windows ME USB support drivers over to 98SE. Why?
So that any device that meets the "USB Mass Storage"
specifications will be truly Plug-n-Play with 98SE.
That leads to a more stable system because you no
longer need a unique manufacturer driver for each
USB device you use. (Things like scanners, printers,
speakers and anything that's NOT like a "disk drive"
will still require their own drivers.)

Excellent. Thanks

But wait, there's more! Even more clever people have
figured out how to "transplant" over 600 system files
from Win ME and Win XP SP2 into 98SE. Why? To make it
faster and more stable, assimilating the better bits
of later versions without adding the not so good
"features". You'll need a Windows ME CD-ROM and
download the Windows XP Service Pack 2
"redistributable" or "stand alone" installer. It's
huge, but handy to have on a CD-R for any XP box you
encounter that hasn't been updated. (Especially if it
only has a dialup connection!)

Hmmm, not sold on SP2. Already have the stand alone. :)

I'm going to try all that on my PII 300Mhz laptop that
only has a 6.4G hard drive and 128meg RAM.

If only other OSes could be so hackable....... My P3 600mhz laptop runs a 4.8G drive and XP Home. A spare laptop harddrive, anyone? ;)
Figure I can use the old drive in the amiga.
