The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

Thanks, when I get "SUPERPUPPY 2" sorted out, I will check that out.

Thanks again. Right now I am working on getting my 16 partitions checked for errors and defragged. Then comes ghost Images of the more important ones. Another question I have about Win98-SE is how and where can I find a driver to support using USB Flash Sticks ? Right now if I plug one in it shows up in device manager as nothaving a driver.

This seems to be the best chance for 98SE USB mass storage support:
Not everybody reports success - I think it depends on how "standard" the USB is on a particular motherboard.

Thanks again. SUPERPUPPY 2 is an ASUS P5A-B machine with a K6-3+ 450 ACZ overclocked to 550 MHz. Do you think they will have a suitable driver for something that antique ?

There's just the one generic driver, so it will either work for you or not - if you try it and it's not successful, you could experiment with going back to spec CPU speed (just to see if that's what stops it from working) as overclocking on older boards can throw timings out and affect things like USB. I can't say whether the driver is more or less likely to work OK with the ALi Aladdin V chipset on that board.

And thanks to "Aussie Addict" I downloaded and installed Avast 4.8, and it is working on "SUPERPUPPY 2"
And thanks to Platypus I can now use USB Flash Sticks in SUPERPUPPY 2.
This antique machine is gradually becoming usefull once again. Don't find too many 550 - 618 MHz "AT" machines still running these days, especially with 2x 40 Gig internal HDDs, and 1x 80 Gig HDD in a Hot Swap Tray, with all HDDs having cooling systems which take air from inside the machine, blow it accross the HDDs, then OUT of the machine by way of ducts. While incoming air from the front chassis fan has to pass through another one of my custom made "Dust Filters" CPU runs at 35 to 43 degrees C, and mobo at a couple degrees cooler

Sounds good! I didn't get to overclock a K6-3, but I did take an original K6-233 to 250MHz with a 2.5x clock on a 100MHz Super Socket 7 rather than the spec 66MHz FSB. That went well, with the extra memory speed.
