    Obtain Second Edition

    I'm on Win 98 First Edition (OEM installed) and in the UK. Can I still obtain an upgrade to second edition, and if so, how?

    I am not sure if you can get SE.
    But you should certainly be able to install any upgrades you have missed for 98 (straight).

    Your best bet might be eBay.

    I don't know if you have an equivalent in the UK, but yesterday I saw Win98SE in Costco, a discount 'warehouse' like Sam's Club.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>Edited by WyllyWylly on 27-May-02 03:31.</P>Go to:
    http://outpost.com ( Fry's Electronics Online store )
    Click the button for software, In the empty box search for "Windows 98 SE" and it will show it there in the list. Upgrade is $89.95, full edition is $179.95. You may be able to order it online from them. (if you are in the USA or know someone here to buy it for you. I don't know if they will ship overseas.)

    PS: if you do upgrade, be sure to go to the Windows Update Site (Click Start, Windows Update) and get ALL the security updates, it will take a bit of time, but if you don't, there are too many security holes in the packaged version.
