i totally agree, please tell us computer specs. these are my rough estimates
pentium3 or athlon 400Mhz or faster p3 - winXP
celeron or duron 600Mhz or faster - winxp
not even sure they make those in that range, anything less should run win98. i am almost 100% sure your computer is slower than any of that. almost all computers that are made by dell, compaq, HP, ect that have win98 are ancient POS by todays standards.
