:sad: I wonder if I'll be able to get those handy patches any more?

"Patches?? We don't need no stinking patches!!" :rolleyes:

Note that it says Windows 98 and not Windows 98 SE. Anyone who hasn't updated to SE already should do an in-place upgrade now, even if from a borrowed disc.

For a long time, I have been telling folks to go to the Corporate Download Center and download everything they find for 98 and SE and burn it to a CD. Those patches, though, should still be available -- just none new after end-of-life.

anyone who couldnt have guessed 9x isnt going to be supported much longer well yea >.<

why support the old when your pusing the new
