I'll make you the same offer

assuming that I can burn copies.

Except for ICS every other update is simply part of the available updates. MS simply doesn't differentiate SE items from the Win 98 items.

I just saw 50+ on Ebay.
Computers and networking>software>operating systems>windows>98.
Caution. There are so many versions: some used,some new
3.1 and 95 to 98
3.1 and 95 to 98se
98 to 98se
98se full...not upgrade.
$20 to $60 incl shipping.You have to have at least a debit card to signup/bid. Some allow money order, most want PayPal. It all takes time, especially to transfer funds to/from PayPal and your bank.
Friend has one.

Are you aware that allupdates 98 to SE

I have the CD. It says "do not make illegal copies of this CD", but since MS gave it out free I assume that I could burn you a copy and send it to you. {no charge]

To protect your identity and adress you could contact Toni Hackler the moderator and I could send it to her to mail to you. Toni and me are email friends for years.
