> Can I run on Win98 on and old laptop?
While all the pieces probably run on Win98, last time I checked something in the
flow did not work, and we aren't going to fix it.
Win2000 is a viable alternative on a machine that can run 98. Win2000 does not
require registration with Microsoft.
I was actually running XP on a laptop that originally had ME running on it. I
had to strip everything out of XP, but it did run in 256MB of memory.
Now for $300 you can get a NetBook running XP that works great (in fact I use an
HP mini when I'm on the road). Or XP refurbed desktops on ebay <$200 or the
local computer repair place can probably get you an old XP desktop <$100.
