Right then. My PC at work runs windows 98 first release. We have a spare copy of windows 98se (spare means that the pc it ran on has been pu out of action). The problem is we want to run Internet Cnnnection Sharing and first win98 sdoesnt allow this. In a nutshell is it possible to upgrade win98 first edition to second edition using a FULL copy and not an upgrade.

Iddy biddy problem. When I use the full disc I get a message saying something along the line of 'can not update win98 using full package, use an upgrade disc'. Any ideas round it??

If i remember correctly you cannot upgrade 98 to 98se with the full disk, you'd need an upgrade :(

You can upgrade but you must do it from a dos prompt. Insert the full ver into your cd rom and boot from this disk and then do the upgrade....

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
