daniel_b2380: This is just for a laugh. A few years ago when my kids were bringing home their XP and Vista computers from college, they could not connect with my DSL setup at home unless I dragged up the modem drivers installation disk from the basement and put it on their computers. As a test, I hooked up my 1998 Compaq with Windows 98 to the same DSL connection, and instant internet (with no installation disk!). And by the way, this particular computer had a factory-fresh 98 SE install. Nothing else.
