Hi

 

I got grandkids wanting to play my old 98' PC games but I don't  want them to use my PC even if I could figure a way to load them. Anyway I have a never used Win98se cd and looking to buy a Dell 260 to load it on. My question are there any reasons that PC with these specs prevent me to install it? 

 

DELL 260

 

CPU:  2.66GHz

MEMORY: 1GB

HD CAPACITY: 40GB

 

TIA

I thought there was a 512gb max ram for Win98.

If you would please. Post all of the system numbers. What is the exact model number  and possible service tag number. I am looking something up for you.

I checked for a gx260 optiplex. Here are the drivers you will need to install after the OS is installed. 

 

all win 98 check the devices and see what you have as far as hardware. Hope this helps,
