Running windows 98 on an inspiron 8200 notebook

\015 Is there any way to modify video and audio drivers for windows 98 to run on an inspiron 8200 notebook? All of the drivers are either for windows 2000 or XP.\015

Answers :

When I've done this before, I had to goto the chipset drivers website in order to get the correct drivers for win-98.

\015\012This takes some time time, and a little hunting - you can goto driversguide.com to help get started.
Short answer: NO.
\015\012
\015\012Note that Microsoft stopped issuing security-updates for Windows 98 over _FIVE_ years ago.
\015\012Any Windows 98 system that is connected to the Internet _will_ get "hacked", in a short time.
\015\012So, it's time to "trash" any system running Windows 98.
\015\012
\015\012Windows 2000 is a much better Operating System than Windows 98,
\015\012and it will run on any computer that can also run Windows 98.
\015\012
\015\012Install Windows 2000, and use the available drivers.
