Question about IBM ThinkPad 600X Notebook
Your cpu is slower than I was thinking of. However you should be able to load XP. When you load XP remove all partitions and set it up on NTFS. Go for a full installation, load, anti virus and any utilities that you want. Get yourself an external hard drive and save all your folders to that after you have finished working on them. That way you will free up your cpu to manage. If you still want to load 98. Try going into the Bios and set the CD drive as your first boot option, with a bit of luck it may work. Once you have loaded your operating system be it 98 or XP, go back into the bios and re-set your boot preferences to HDD then CD Rom. Failing that I can not help you any futher. You may think of up grading to at least a P3 in the future. Another point. Borrow a copy of windows XP from a friend and install that, if it loads ok then you can obtain your own copy if you want to.
