I don't understand! The cache is only active when Win98 is running.Originally posted by johnwill:
The reason for limiting the cache would be if you have a dual boot system with some other O/S and want to also boot it to W98.
Duh! Your original post stated that the reason you would want to limit the cache would be if you were running a dual boot system.Originally posted by johnwill:
DUH! When you boot to W98, it is running!
I'll try to talk slow. If you have a system with more than 512mb of RAM, and you want to have a dual boot with W98, say for some application or game that won't run with a newer O/S, then when you boot the W98 configuration, you'll need to set the VCACHE limitation. I was agreeing that if you were only running W98, there probably wouldn't be a reason to equip the system with the additional RAM in the first place. Remember, we were talking about getting W98 to run with more than 512mb, and the comment was made that you'd probably have little use for additional RAM with W98 anyway.Originally posted by WhitPhil:

I still don't understand what the relationship is between the dual boot system and the file cache.
