  • You need to reinstall drivers. You'll need to add English keyboard support, and make sure that the drivers for your graphics are up to date. Win98 defaults to the US keyboard layout, and a standard VGA driver on installation. You will be able to find these on your WIN98 disc.

As the night wears on, my posts will become worse, with simple spelling mistakes, inane ramblings, and a blatant disregard for the truth. I have no authority to do anything, so there's no point asking or telling me. If you see me past midnight, please tell me to get my coat and order me a taxi.
