    I have an old 100 MHz machine, which during POST gives a "resource
    allocation error during autoallocation" error. Also gives the error as
    Windows loads. However, the machine seems to operate OK. What are these
    error messages telling me? Fdisk, format, reinstall don't fix. Nothing new
    has been added.

    You need to be more specific about your system but a typical cause has to do
    with a hardware jumper vs. something configured manually in the BIOS.

    Do you have a "plug_and_play" entry in yout BIOS?
