The only downside is you may have to search for drivers since the hardware was made after windows but for the most part Win9x is still supported by most if not all mfg; and drivers are available on the manufactures' site. I know of several people who has 98(SE) on new P-4/Large HD machine and they just love it & have have had little if any "out of the ordinary" (for Win98) problems

...just be aware, though, that Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 98 back in December of 2003. So, although their <a href="http://support.microsoft.com">Support</a> articles are good, they wouldn't be able to assist you if you come across another problem.

Just install RedHat 9 or something and dual-boot it with Windows 98. You'll like it. ;-)

No I bought 2000 because I was told 98 would not work right with newer mobo's and other harware, just wanted to see if anyone has had luck with it.
