My friend gave me a Dell Latitude XPi CD to install 98SE on for him. I've been in BIOS but theres no option to set it to boot of a CD. Is there anyway to make this computer boot off my 98 cd?

Thanks,

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

LOL! I guess not. I was able to perform an install from the booted up OS. Last question that just came up: DWL-G650 is it compatible on that computer with 98SE?

Thanks,

I agree with Dachew

After reading the specks Its only got 16 megs of ram on it

Hardly worth messing with.
In the beginning there was the command line.
