Minimum hardware requirements for Windows 98:
1. 486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor (Pentium central processing unit recommended).
2. 16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended).
3. Hard disk space may range from between 120 MB and 295 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
4. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT16 drive requires 225 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 165 MB and 355 MB, depending on your computer configuration and that options that you choose to install.
5. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires 175 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 140 MB and 255 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
6. One 3.5-inch high-density floppy disk drive.
7. VGA or higher resolution (16-bit or 24-bit color SVGA recommended).

If your PC does not meet the above minimium requirements, you are bound to get errors popup installing or running software.

Video driver for Dellm770 with Dell Optiplex110 - running Windows98

video si dependent on the video card you have. WIn98 is capable of 32 colors, therfore, you need to get a video card that is capable of giving 32 bit color.
as fa as digiital pic, you need at least 32bit if not 256bit. which win98 will have a hard time to comeup with.

I think it is time to upgrade.

I'm Having problem with Vista, not detecting Pen Drive

Unplug the pen drive before booting (newer laptops support booting from a USB drive, and they restore your "healthy restore point".

Format the Pen drive from Disk Management (right click on computer, choose manage, select Disk Management) to 32 bit fat, this leaves it compatible with Windows 98 SE, but the 16 Bit seems to give Vista fits. Good luck.

How to install os

This is a little difficult but it can B done :) Firstly I dunno if ya need to re-format ya drive? perhaps first ya could try to "Repair" of Win98? If that doesn't work,then, perhaps ya may have to re-format. If the Win98 is on a SEPARATE drive or Partition this also makes a difference.... Basically ... repair/re-install win98, then do a repair of ya Boot menu for XP, as Win98 sets up an incorrect Boot up for XP, and thus must be "Fixed" so XP will boot & show a Dual boot menu.. here are some links to help you step by step...
