    Is it my imagination or do interrupted downloads in XP not restart from the point of interruption like Win98SE did? I have had some connection problems with my dial up service this morning and have tried several times to download a file, but it always starts over. This was a very useful feature in Win98SE, is there something I need to turn on in XP to get it to do this?

    It not a standard feature for Windows 98 either. Go to Download.com and look for third party download utilities. V.92 the new modem protocol reportly also supports it and Call Waiting.
