I had the same problem and am also using Win 98.
It turned out to be quite simple. This is in IE, we haven't got Netscape working yet with these forums. While in this Newbie forum I clicked on ADD to favourites, then in the box where it shows the URL I backspaced and typed in CNet Newbies. Then I went on to the Virus & Security forums, and did the same thing; renaming the address shown to Virus & Security. They are the only 2 I probably will need.
However, while in the favourites, I made a new sub folder in my FORUMS folder, called CNet, and put those 2 bookmarks in that folder.
'Works fine. I'll figure out Netscape and Opera later.
I used to visit 6 different forums and had each 1 bookmarked.Now if i go to computer newbies and bookmark it then go to win98 and try to bookmark it will overwrite the first 1???Anyway around this besides putting each 1 in a different folder?
