    I have an IBM-x41 laptop. A program I have that I used to run on win98 will not run on xp. Is it possible to format an SD card and install win98se on it....and maybe get the x41 to boot to it?

    To be clear on this, you don't want to run programs on it, you want to boot to and run the complete operating system from a SD memory card?

    If a system supports booting from a memory card, then I suppose it would work. I haven't heard of a system that does that yet, however.

    Yes...run the complete OS from the memory card. I don't think compatibility mode will do the trick...else...the software company (that wrote PC-STUDY BIBLE) would probably have suggested that rather than forcing users to order a cdrom.
