Hi, a friend has found an old Windows 98 computer. The hard drive is 10gb, there is 96mb RAM and the processor is an AMD K6™ 3D Processor. This is all the information I know about the computer as of now. Does anyone have an idea of what PC it could be or could have it been a custom build? Also, how can he find out the make and model of the motherboard? Would he have to open it up?

Try downloading speccy. I'd give you the link but I'm on my phone but a Google search should find it. It should give you a complete spec list

According to their website, it isn't compatible with Windows 98.

Go figure. Is there any markings on the motherboard? Letters or numbers?
