    I need a copy of the regular boot.ini file for Windows 98. I do not
    have machines running 98 except for the one I am working on. If you
    could PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON TOP give me what the basic boot.ini file
    looks like, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Just looked at two of my Win98 machines, neither has a "Boot.ini"
    Windows XP however does and contains (in this case)

    [boot loader]
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP
    Professional" /fastdetect

    To what end do you need this file?

    Win98 doesn't have a boot.ini file, NT4/2k/XP use boot.ini
    when there is more than one operating system in use.

    Partially correct. Boot.ini is found in these OS's, regardless of the number
    of operating systems installed.

    <blink> There isn't one.

    BOOT.INI is used on NT class OSes, not 9X class OSes.

    If you have a 9x OS with a BOOT.INI, then it's because it's
    dual-booted with an NT class OS.

    If win 98 doesnt normally have it, I am deleting it! Looks like
    someone may have thought about upgrading the computer I am working on
    and stopped once they started.
