I'm about to upgrade my box, but want to stick with running 98SE. I'm hoping to get some information on a few issues:
o Biggest harddrive that 98 will not have trouble with. I have heard, for instance, that FDISK is not able to recognize more than 60GB, so this would maybe limit the size in terms of partitioning it.
o Max memory 98 will be able to 1) See 2) Use. I've read all kinds of stuff on this issue, but have never found a definitive answer. I've seen a suggestion of using 512MB, with half of it as a ramdrive for the swapfile. Any comments on this idea?
o Using two parallel ports (one for scanner, one for printer). I'm hoping to use this as a way to circumvent the conficts I get with the piggybacked configuration.
The possible candidate is AMD XP 2.0GHz with 256MB DDR RAM 333MHz. I don't know much about video cards (either) but 64MB sounds enough to me. Would it be worth upping it?
thanks for any info
