First off, the MN700 basestation is not suported to do this. But it is doable, and here is what I did. I connected a win XP machine (the ICS host) to a win 98 machine (the ICS client). Both used good old fashion network interface cards and standard ethernet cable - no wireless for me yet (that's next week) First I installed the software for the MN700 - aka the "Microsoft Broadband Network Utility." Then I went in to configure the router. I simply set the MN700 to Access Point mode. I did this by logging into the MN700's Base Station Managment Tool. I gave the MN700 a name (ie MSHOME-MN-700 works well), because after I change it from Router to Access Point mode it will no longer have a fixed IP address. To change it, select Security -> Base Station Mode Select the radio button for "Access Point" There is a spot on the bottom of this screen to give the Base Station a name, put something in here (ie MSHOME-MN-700). click apply. Now, I restarted my winXP machine, my win98 machine, and my MN700. Once they all came back online, I went to my dialup connection (Start->Control Panel then select Network Connections). Right click on the dialup connection, and go to properties. On the advanced tab, select the check box for "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection." Click OK Now I restarted my winXP machine and the MN700 again. They came back online, and I could see the MN700 on the network (my machine now gave out IP address (via DHCP and ICS). Now I restarted the win98 machine and it hooked up to the network fine. Wireless devices also connect to the network now with no problems. The key is to set the MN700 from Router to Access Point. If you want to add File and Print Sharing, it is the same as on any network. If you have a USB highspeed modem, this will work as well. If you have a highspeed modem connected directly to a PC via ethernet and you don't want it to go throught the MN700 first, this will work too, but the PC will need a second ethernet interface. Either WiFi or wired. Cheers

Win 98 recovery used instead of win xp sp2. computer won't start, shows win 98 screen and stops


win XP will not use anything from a win98 program. If XP is installed you must either use the recovery discs or better, the original XP disc.

Viking Rose 605 does not read anything but Win 98.


Ebay may have a laptop with win 98 but that is a pretty old OS. No way to register the software without contacting Viking to ask them to allow you to register her old software unless she sent you the reg numbers. She can't transfer ownership to you without those numbers on a certificate. Only originators of the software can allow you to do that by overriding her registration. Contact VSM and ask them if they will do this so you can use it.

Partition not 100% on laptop 700 presario


From the description loo\ks like it's not a partition problem, but the Compaq CD.
Try to partition Hard Drive using Windows 98 bootable CD.
Try to install Win XP from different CD - doesn't have to be Compaq. Later you can download drivers.

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... http://pcworld.about.com/magazine/2109p156id111652.htm http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/ew/2004/08/30/stories/2004083000250400.htm
