    I have just built a new comp using a gigabyte ga7dx mobo and an athalon 1.4 266 processor with 256mb of 2100 ddr ram
    when i try to install 98se i get the windows requires atleast 16 mb of memory error. I know the pc is picking up the memory because it wouldnt even turn on if it didnt. Any help is much appreciated.

    I don't know that much about mobo's, you have
    checked that the memory is ok for that system?
    Have you checked the bios?

    Try clocking your memory down to 100 and installing, after install punch it back up to 133.
