Hello there.


I understand that you need windows 98 bootable CD.

If you want the entire windows 98 cd then go through this link..

http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/3611148/Windows_98SE_Bootable_ISO

You need torrent software to download this file .
Go to www.utorrent.com to download the utorrent software. After downloading install the software and double click on the previous downloaded file to open it in utorrent.


The below link would take you to a page where you can download only bootable s/w. Follow the instructions there.

Boot from usb


Introduction UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you've already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn't on the list.
Requirements
  • Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, or Linux, or Mac OS X 10.5+. Note that resulting USB drives are bootable only on PCs (not on Macs).
  • Internet access for downloading a distro to install, or a pre-downloaded ISO file
Features UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive, or it can make a "frugal install" on your local hard disk if you don't have a USB drive. It loads distributions either by downloading a ISO (CD image) files for you, or by using an ISO file you've already downloaded.

The current version has built-in support for automatically downloading and loading the following distributions, though installing other distributions is also supported:

I have hp compaq nx 9020 and I installed linux as my only os, but now I want to change my os to xp but bios says "no boot file name recived" how to fix this?


It seems as if you have some of your boot priorities out of skew, specifically having booting through your network connection as a higher priority. In order to fix this, you need to go into your bios settings and rearrange the boot settings so that booting from LAN is either disabled or not the top priority and making booting from CD or HDD the top priority.

What are the requirments for installing Linux System


Linux is much more HW friendly than MS Windows. There are no requirements generally. You may need the following:-
5 to 6 GB of **** space. 1 Gb of RAM should be more than enough.
May I suggest some options to you?
1. Go to www.custom.nimblex.com. Here you can customize your linux version. Ask for whatever you want from the list and you can download a .iso file which can be burnt to a bootable CD. This live CD can be inserted into any computer and boot from it in linux of your choice.
2. Go to www.knoppix.com and download the latest version of linux as a .iso file and then burn to a CD to make a live knoppix CD.
Both these options are cheap and very versatile. You can use them to boot any computer.

How can i install Linux OS on my laptop? please help


do you want to have Linux while you are also having Windows? Then is will be a dual boot. To do this, have another partition of your hard disk empty. Like C (windows) and Drive E(free partition).
Download the latest version of ubuntu linux and use the bootable cd to install ubuntu on the other partition

Install Linux OS


I would recommend installing Linux Mint LXDE, Cinnamon or KDE, which is a free OS available for free download from http://linuxmint.com Cinnamon and KDE are full featured, XFCE is streamlined and slightly faster and a better choice for older computers with less memory and/or storage space. All versions come with Firefox and LibreOffice full Office Suite, capable of saving and reading files in the popular MS Office formats like .doc, .docX, .ppt and xls.

Linux comes with almost everything necessary to begin using the computer immediately after installing the OS.

To install it on a netbook or notebook computer, I'm assuming you don't have a DVD optical drive so you have to install it from a USB thumb drive. If you have a DVD optical drive, I would still recommend installing it from the USB thumb drive, ... it's more reliable and less prone to failures from trying to burn a DVD on old, dirty or out-of tolerance equipment.

First download the .iso file on another computer. If you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit, you can use the 32-bit for both, or try the 64-bit - if that doesn't work, use the 32-bit.

Use a free program to create a bootable USB using the .iso file. (You can't just copy the file to the USB drive) ... I'd recommend using Active ISO Burner from NTFS.com ... here's the download link ... http://www.ntfs.com/iso-burning.htm (You should be using at least an 8 GB size thumb drive).

Once you've created the bootable USB drive from the .iso file, you should be able to insert it and start the computer and see the Linux Mint startup screen. It will come up in LIVE mode, without installing itself, so you can try it out.

If you want to install it, make sure you are connected to the Internet and have your AC power adapter plugged in.

If the computer doesn't come up with the Linux screen, you probably just need to reset your BIOS boot order so it boots from the USB driver first. Plug in the USB drive and start the computer. Look of instructions for set up or boot order, usually pressing F2 while the computer is starting. Follow the directions to move the USB to the top of the boot devices, i.e. about the hard drive. Save changes and restart the computer. It should now boot from the USB. If you have trouble doing this or burning the bootable USB, you might have a geek friend or relative that can help or do it for you.

When the LIVE mode comes up, it displays the Linux desktop with an Install icon. If you double click the Install Icon you will begin the installation process and just follow the simple prompts and create a password when prompted.

Linux never requires anti-virus and does not become infected. You can visit the main http://linuxmint.com website and download the .PDF manual if you are interested.

Your computer is probably 64-bit, but if not, there is also a 32-bit version available for download.

The image shown below is from my Acer and is Linux Mint KDE, which is also available from the same website and similar to LXDE, but more full-featured. All Google programs I know of are available for Linux, since Google uses 100% Linux. Android is Linux also.

Once you install your Linux, you'll want to run the Update Manager to get the latest updates.

On my Acer netbook I have 3 Linux OS's installed. Linux Mint Cinnamon 64-bit, Linux Mint KDE Cinnamon 64-bit and Linux Mint XFCE 64-bit. I select the OS I want at startup when the computer starts.

Hope this helps. bdf3eb0b-7c1d-4c93-b25d-72c3f473ae47.jpg

I wan to use windows 98 along with XP


this is tricky as win98 is not supported and can not work on faster processors, The book says 2 gig but I had a problem on 1.8 ghz.

the next problem is win98 does not rceognize ntfs file systems. so a bootable partion manager (like linux GParted) would have to be run, to shrink the ntfs partition without altering content to allow another partition to be created then formatted into FAT32 so you could load 98 from a bootable cd.
