However there are other browsers out there that run just fine. IE 6.0 runs on 98 just fine so you can use that or go get the old version from other sites.
I only found one question in your post so be sure to ask questions if you need answers.
Here's the deal, the whole world is not online. Shock.
My only internet access is public computers at county library.
I have a computer I inherited, it is not online, not ever. It has SE 98 installed. I have a digital camera using SE98 compatable software and a photoprinter the same. The software will not install without an upgrade of IE to a 5.06 version.
I tried to download to a floppy but it's a no-go. HP, manufacturer, has a notice that they're not allowed to service SE98 anymore.
Considering MS will probably slit the throat of 2000 just like they have with 98 it doesn't seem worth buying upgrades.
What also, is compatability of new IE versions with 98?
