Importing Win98 OE inbox


Overclocked Like A Mother
Hi Guys,

I would like to import the inbox contents of a Win98 machine to a new WinXPHome OE machine.

The Win98 machine does not have a cdburner, and I cannot config my flash key to work on it, it will not show up. So I am thinking maybe crossover cable and, as a last resort, slave the HD to the new machine.

I would like to know where the inbox contents are located on the HD (in case I need to slave the drive), and if possible how to config the two network cards for the crossover cable to work. If the crossover cable setup works, I will use the import feature in the XPHomeOE and see if that works.

Thanks in advance,

D, My brother,

This is a client's machine at her house that is being replaced by the XPHome machine. It is not at my place. It's a stand alone machine.

Thanks for the links, Bud.

Crossover cable would be easiest, but have you checked your vendor to see if a driver is available for your jump drive? Or is that not your problem?

This may sound silly, but if you end up slaving, be sure to verify jumpers. I have made that mistake more than once and beat my head into a wall before I figured it out :s

Best of luck!

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
