A very serious problem with Windows 98 (SE) is that Microsoft ceased
providing security updates a long time ago and most anti-virus vendors
stopped supporting it as well. If you are connected to the Internet with
that machine, you really owe it to the rest of us to stop using it. If your
machine doesn't have the resources to run an up -to-date Microsoft OS, now
is your chance to do a native install (vs Wubi) of Ubuntu. You won't want
to go back.
