My sister gave me and old HP Pavilion w/ WIN 98 (NOT 98SE) preinstalled, no installation disk supplied. It has a 60 MB Hd and 64 MB of RAM. I have XP Pro on my machine. The 98 dinosaur was top of the line in it's day and still works great. The problem - I can't load anything on it. It has a dial-up internet connection and I don't have dial-up, I've got cable; The 3 1/2" floppys aren't compatable between it and my XP and the flash drives I tried need a driver which I can't load. I have a PCI Ehternet card I tried to use but I couldn't load the g*****n driver. Can I use a parallel cable plugged into both to transfer data to the 98 machine or am I S.O.L.? Oh, yeah, I tried a Linksys WMP54g wirless card hoping to get on the internet to download stuff but that was a NoGo. I don't need to get on the internet, I want to load some programs so I can use it for some sort of media machine. Any ideas besides a ballpeen massage?
