Have you installed the drivers for Win 98 on the Windows 98 system? The drivers and everything else on XP will have no effect on the 98 System.
i have a hewlett packard pavillion a404x. hard drive c has windows xp. hard drive d has windows 98 installed. when i try to use the modem for 98, it doesnt recognize it. the modem is usable when i boot to xp. i really want to dial into an old version of aol(6.0) to retrieve some very old e-mails and such from old backups and cannot do it in xp (different file systems). im sure im doing something wrong in windows 98, but i cannot figure out what. device manage doesnt show any conflicts and the modem test in 98 shows that the modem is good and i know its good because the darn thing works in xp. can anyone at all help me with this. thank you
