I have windows 95 4.00 950a running on a Dell 133MH 64Mg with 1+ GB of
free space with IE5.5. I have a CD with windows 98 Non-OEM??). Can I
install w98 on this config? Can I install right over w95? Are there
any pre-install steps I should do prior to installation? When I browse
the CD it asks if I want to install w98 now??? Unsure?
Any advice will be greatly apprecieted. Thank you. Felix

i believe you may need to uninstall IE5.5 first
also
if your win98 cd is the full version
you will have to first rename win.com (in your windows folder)
then reboot using a cd support bootdisk

to do an upgrade, you will also have to be sure to install in your
original C:\windows folder (if it defaults to c:\windows.000)

If your description of "OEM" means not an original or copy of win 98 and not
a restore disk from one of the OEM vendors (Dell, Compaq, Gateway and the
infamous HP) you should be fine. Win 98 is a much larger program so you will
loose a lot of the speed you have come used to with only 64 megs of ram
