1. INSTALLATION NOTES *IMPORTANT*
=================================
The Windows 98 Second Edition Updates CD is intended as a
Windows 98 upgrade only. You can install it only over an
existing version of Windows 98. Because of this limitation,
you should be aware of several issues.

MS-DOS installations are not supported
--------------------------------------
Because this version will only upgrade over Windows 98,
installations from MS-DOS have been disabled. This means you
must be able to boot your current version of Windows 98 and run
Setup from there.

Cannot reinstall entire OS from the Updates CD
----------------------------------------------
If you want to do a clean installation to a new directory or
new drive letter, you must first install the original
Windows 98 released version, and then apply the Updates CD.
You can not reinstall the entire Windows 98 Second Edition
directly from the Updates CD. You should always keep your
original Windows 98 CD-ROM (or floppy disks) in case you must
reinstall.

Troubleshooting failed installations
------------------------------------
If Setup fails part-way through installation, you may be left
with a non-functioning Windows 98 system. If you cannot boot
back into Windows 98, you will not be able to run Setup again
from the Updates CD. This is why it is very important to shut
down all running programs and any extra items running in the
system tray or taskbar, and to disable all anti-virus or scheduled
tasks that may interfere with Setup. In the event of this type
of failure, you may need to uninstall back to Windows 98, or
reinstall Windows 98 again and then try to upgrade again.

If Setup does fail and you are unable to continue, see section 3,
TROUBLESHOOTING SETUP ISSUES, for more information on how to
recover from these situations.

Disk-space requirements
-----------------------
Because many factors go into calculating the amount of free disk
space required for Windows 98 Second Edition, these figures are
only estimates based on typical Windows 98 Second Edition
installations.

A typical installation requires approximately 145 MB of free hard-
disk space, but can range between 140 MB to 245 MB, depending on
your system configuration and the options you choose to install.

For broadcast reception, you need a compatible TV tuner card,
a Pentium or higher microprocessor, and an additional 65 MB of
hard-disk space.

If you are installing Windows 98 Second Edition to a drive other
than C, Setup can require up to 35 MB of free disk space on drive
C for the system and log files created during Setup.

Uninstall
---------
We recommend creating uninstall information before upgrading. To
do this, select the Save Your System Files option during Setup.
This will allow you to uninstall Windows 98 Second Edition if
you have problems. The uninstall information can require up to
110 MB or more depending upon your system configuration. However,
you cannot do this if your current Windows 98 installation is on
a compressed drive.


2. QUICK TIPS FOR AN ERROR-FREE SETUP
=====================================
Disable all anti-virus programs running on your system. If
these utilities are running during Setup, your system may stop
responding.

NOTE: Some systems have anti-virus capabilities built in. If
this option is left enabled in BIOS/CMOS settings, you may receive
a warning about "virus-like activity" or "Master Boot Record"
changes. You must allow these changes to take place for Setup to
complete successfully. See your anti-virus software documentation
for more information.

Run ScanDisk to check and fix any problems with your hard disk(s).

Close all running programs. This includes disabling any screen
savers, advanced power management settings, scheduled tasks, and
any other programs that may cause Setup to stop responding. See
"Performing a clean boot" in the next section.


3. TROUBLESHOOTING SETUP ISSUES
===============================

Performing a clean boot
-----------------------
Third-party device drivers, utilities, or other programs can
prevent a successful installation. Clean-booting your system
can fix many of these problems. Windows 98 provides a tool for
automating many of the steps required to clean-boot a system.

1. Click Start, click Run, and then type

msconfig

2. Click the Selective startup button.

3. Clear all the check boxes and click OK.

4. When prompted to restart, click Yes.

5. When Windows 98 reboots, you should be in a clean environment
to run Setup.


If Setup fails and you cannot boot into Windows 98
--------------------------------------------------
If Windows 98 Second Edition Setup fails when upgrading over
Windows 98 and you cannot boot back into your original Windows
98 installation, you should try the following:

1. Restart your computer and hold the CTRL key until you see the
Windows 98 boot menu.

2. Choose Safe mode. If Safe mode works, see "Performing a clean
boot" in section 3, TROUBLESHOOTING SETUP ISSUES.

3. Restart when prompted by Msconfig.

4. If Windows 98 boots, try running Setup again.

Reinstall your original version of Windows 98 over itself.
This may allow you to try the Update CD again. We recommend
performing a clean boot before running Setup again. This may
resolve the problem that caused Setup to fail the first time.

Uninstall Windows 98 Second Edition from MS-DOS. If you saved
your system files during the initial Setup wizard, you can
uninstall the failed Setup back to your original Windows 98 system.
To uninstall Windows 98 Second Edition from MS-DOS, follow these
steps:

1. Restart your computer and hold the CTRL key until you see the
Windows 98 boot menu.

2. Choose Command Prompt Only.

3. At the prompt, type

Uninstal

4. After Uninstall has completed, restart your computer and allow
Windows 98 to boot again. Before you try the upgrade again, see
"Performing a clean boot" in section 3, TROUBLESHOOTING SETUP ISSUES.

NOTE: For more information on uninstalling Windows 98, see section 7,
REMOVING WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION FROM YOUR SYSTEM.


4. FINDING HARD-DISK PROBLEMS DURING SETUP USING SCANDISK
=========================================================
The version of ScanDisk that runs during Windows 98 Second Edition
Setup checks for errors but does not fix them. Setup cannot continue
until errors are fixed. To do this, quit Setup and run ScanDisk
from Windows 98 or MS-DOS. The below information has instructions
about using ScanDisk to fix various problems.

Fixing hard-disk problems
-------------------------
If a message appears during Setup stating that you must run
ScanDisk to fix problems on your hard disk, follow these steps:

1. Quit Setup.

2. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to
System Tools, and then click ScanDisk.

3. Check your hard disks and host drives for errors and repair any
problems. Be sure to do a complete surface scan on all your
drives, or Setup may still find errors.

If running ScanDisk from Windows 98 does not fix your hard-disk
problems, try running ScanDisk from MS-DOS:

1. Click Start, click Shut Down, and then click Restart in
MS-DOS mode.

2. At the MS-DOS command prompt, type:

scandisk.exe /all

3. Follow the on-screen instructions and fix any problems that
ScanDisk finds.

4. Restart Windows 98 and run Setup again.

If you have other problems while Setup is running ScanDisk, you
can bypass ScanDisk in Setup by running Setup with the /IS option.
To do this, type:

setup /is


ScanDisk reports out-of-memory
------------------------------
Some larger hard disks may be formatted in a way that does not
allow ScanDisk to check them. Such hard disks are larger than
18 GB and are usually in systems provided by OEMs.

In such a case, you should run Setup with the /IS and /IQ switches
to bypass both ScanDisk and the crosslink file check by typing:

Setup /is /iq

NOTE: Bypassing ScanDisk during Setup is not recommended because
there may be problems with your hard disk that could cause
Windows 98 Second Edition not to install or run correctly.


5. ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE
======================
Make sure that no anti-virus program is running while you setup
Windows 98 Second Edition. If the program is a terminate-and-stay-
resident program, remove any references to it in your Autoexec.bat,
Config.sys, and Win.ini files.

If your BIOS has built-in virus protection, disable it before
running Setup. To do this, you must use the CMOS setup program
for your BIOS. For more information, see the documentation for
your computer.

The below information discusses specific anti-virus programs.

CMOS/BIOS-enabled virus protection:
Some systems come with virus protection built-in. If this is
left enabled, you may be warned with "Virus-like Activity" or
"Master Boot Record Changed" messages. You must allow these
changes to take place. If you choose to restore the previous
settings, your system may no longer boot.

Norton AntiVirus:
If Norton AntiVirus is installed, you may see the following warning
at the end of the initial file-copy procedure:

Application Wininst0.400\Suwin.exe is
attempting to update the Master Boot Record

Choose Continue (C) to allow Setup to finish. If you do not allow
these changes to take place, Setup may stop responding.

Dr. Solomon's Anti-Virus:
If you are running Dr. Solomon's Anti-Virus utility, you may
receive a blue-screen fatal exception error in Ios.vxd while trying
to create a Startup disk during Setup. You should click Cancel on
the Startup disk screen when the progress bar is at 20%. This will
allow Setup to continue. Look for an update to Dr. Solomon's
Anti-Virus software on their Web site to resolve this issue.


6. CAB FILE ERRORS DURING WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION SETUP
=========================================================
When you try to install Windows 98 Second Edition or a component
that requires copying files from the original Windows disks or
CD-ROM, you may receive one of the following messages:

- "Setup has detected the following decoding error:
Could not decode this setup (.CAB) file. Setup will
attempt to recover from this situation, click OK to
continue."

- "Setup cannot copy all of the files from your Windows
98 CD. Clean the Windows 98 CD with a soft cloth,
return it to the CD-ROM drive, and then click OK. If
you receive this message again, read the CAB Errors
section of the Setup.txt file. This file is in the
Win98 directory of your Windows 98 CD."

These errors can occur for any of the following reasons:
- Your Windows 98 CD-ROM may be damaged, dirty from smudges or
fingerprints, or may be scratched.

- Your CD-ROM drive is not functioning properly. The CD-ROM may
vibrate too much for the laser to accurately read the data.

- Your computer is over-clocked. Extracting files from the
Windows 98 Second Edition cabinet files is memory-intensive.
If your computer is over-clocked beyond the default settings,
it can contribute to decoding errors. Computers that are not
over-clocked but have a cooling problem can also experience
decoding errors.

- Your computer has bad or mismatched RAM or cache. For example,
you are using EDO and non-EDO RAM, or you are using different
RAM speeds. Even if Windows 98 seems to run without problems,
the additional stress of extracting files and accessing the disk
may contribute to decoding errors.

- Your computer has Bus Mastering or Ultra DMA enabled in the BIOS
and in Device Manager. The data may be moving too quickly for
the system to keep up.

- You are using a third-party memory manager.

- There is a virus on your computer.

To resolve such error messages, follow these steps:

1. Remove the CD-ROM from the CD-ROM drive, rotate it one-quarter
to one-half a turn, reinsert the CD-ROM into the drive, and then
click OK.

2. Remove the CD-ROM from the CD-ROM drive. Clean the CD-ROM with
a soft cloth, reinsert it into the drive, and then click OK.

3. Check your computer for a virus using virus-detection software.

4. On one of your hard drives, create an empty folder and name it
"W98flat". Copy the contents of the Win98 folder on the CD-ROM to
the W98flat folder. If you are unable to copy the contents of the
Win98 folder on the CD-ROM to you hard disk, the CD-ROM may be
damaged.

5. If you are still receiving CAB errors in Windows 98, you can
manually extract all the Setup files from the Windows 98 Second
Edition CD-ROM to your hard disk and run Setup from there. It
requires approximately 300 MB of free hard-disk space to extract
the Windows 98 files. You can use the Ext.exe utility to extract
the Windows 98 files. This utility is located on the Windows 98
Startup disk and in the \Oldmsdos folder on the Windows 98 CD-ROM.
To manually extract the Windows 98 files, follow these steps:

a. Insert the Windows 98 Startup disk into the floppy
disk drive, and then restart your computer.

b. At the command prompt, type:

ext

c. When prompted for the location of the cabinet files,
type the path to the W98flat folder that you created in
step 4 above.

d. When prompted for the files to extract, type:

*.*

e. When prompted for the location where the files are to be
extracted, type the path to the W98flat folder.

NOTE: This does not extract the files in the Precopy1.cab
and Precopy2.cab cabinet files.

f. After all the files have been extracted, reboot into
Windows 98 and run Setup from the W98flat folder on your
hard disk.

6. If the above steps do not fix the problem, you can try to slow
down your computer by changing your computer's CMOS settings.
Bus mastering, external/internal cache, RAM settings/timings,
and other settings contribute to the speed at which your computer
runs. For information about how to change these settings, consult
the documentation for your computer.


7. REMOVING WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION FROM YOUR SYSTEM
======================================================
Saving System Files:
Windows 98 Second Edition Setup offers the option of backing up
the previous version of Windows in case you need to uninstall
Windows 98 Second Edition. To enable this option, select the Save
Your System Files option when prompted during Setup. Setup will
then create the following hidden files necessary to uninstall back
to Windows 98:
-W98undo.dat
-W98undo.ini
-Winlfn.ini

NOTE: Deleting these files will prevent Windows 98 Second Edition
from being uninstalled.

If your current Windows installation is on a compressed drive,
you will not be able to uninstall Windows 98 Second Edition and
Setup will not prompt you to Save System Files.

NOTE: You must save the files needed to uninstall Windows 98 Second
Edition on a local hard drive. You cannot save the files on a
network drive or a floppy disk. As long as two or more drives have
adequate free space, you can select the drive on which you want to
save the files.

There are also several actions that can prevent Windows 98 Second
Edition from being uninstalled after Setup is complete. The following
actions will cause the uninstall information to be removed from
your system:

-Converting your hard disk to FAT32
-Compressing your hard disk with DriveSpace

NOTE: These utilities should warn you that the uninstall information
will be lost before they perform conversion or compression.

Removing Windows 98 Second Edition:
To remove Windows 98 Second Edition and completely restore your
system to Windows 98:

1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.

3. On the Install/Uninstall tab, click Uninstall Windows 98 Second
Edition, and then click Add/Remove.

NOTE: UNINSTAL needs to shut down Windows 98 Second Edition. If
this causes a problem, restart your computer and press the CTRL
key until you see the Windows 98 Second Edition boot menu. Then
click Command Prompt Only and run UNINSTAL from the command prompt.

If Setup did not complete successfully and you want to restore your
previous version of Windows 98, you can run UNINSTAL from the
\Windows\Command directory on your hard disk.

If you saved your files on a drive other than C, you can use the
/w option to specify the drive where the files are located. For
example:

uninstal /w e:

where e: is the drive containing your previous system files.

If Windows 98 Second Edition is running and you want to remove the
uninstall files to free disk space, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.

3. On the Install/Uninstall tab, click Remove Windows 98 system
files (Uninstall Info).

You can no longer remove Windows 98 Second Edition.


8. INSTALLING WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION WITH WINDOWS NT
=======================================================
You cannot install Windows 98 Second Edition over any version of
Windows NT, but they can exist together on a single system. However,
for compatibility it is recommended that you install each to a
separate hard disk or partition. If Windows NT is already installed,
Windows 98 Second Edition Setup will add itself to the Windows NT boot
menu to allow the user to multi-boot between Windows 98 Second Edition
and Windows NT.

If you can no longer boot Windows NT, you should boot from the
Windows NT recovery disks and choose the Repair option to restore
the Windows NT boot files.

When installing Windows 98 Second Edition on a system with drives
created with Windows NT, you may receive the following error:

"Setup has detected that your hard disk has a 64K-cluster
FAT partition. Because ScanDisk does not work on disks with
this cluster size, Setup cannot continue. To complete Setup,
you must repartition your hard disk, format the partition with
a FAT file system that has a cluster size of 32K or less, and
then restart Setup."

You can avoid this problem and bypass ScanDisk by running
Setup with the /is parameter. To do this, type:

Setup /is


9. SETUP ERROR MESSAGES
=======================
This section lists specific messages that you may encounter during
Setup and provides information about what to do.

Message SU0018:
"Setup cannot create files on your startup drive and cannot set up
Windows 98. There may be too many files in the root directory of your
startup drive, or your startup drive letter may have been remapped."

The root folder of a drive holds a maximum of 512 entries (files or
folders). This message indicates that Setup has detected too many
directory entries in the root folder of your computer, and Setup
cannot create the files it needs to set up Windows 98 Second Edition.
Move or delete some files from the root folder of your drive, and
then run Setup again.

Long File Names Error Messages:
"Setup has detected that the program, Long File Names, is installed
in this directory. Setup cannot continue." If you receive this
message, you should quit Setup and then remove Long File Names
from your computer by using the Uninstall feature in Long File
Names. See "View Software" for more information.

Not Enough Disk Space Messages:
You can recover disk space by completing any or all of the
following steps:

-Right-click Recycle Bin, and then click Empty Recycle Bin.

-Delete the contents of your Internet browser cache folder.

-Delete files with the extensions .bak and .tmp.

-Delete unused program folders. Be sure to back-up data first.

-Delete the old MS-DOS folder, unless you intend to configure
your computer to run both Windows 98 Second Edition and MS-DOS.
Be sure you have a start disk that supports access to the
CD-ROM drive.

-Delete the hidden file Winundo.dat from the previous Windows
installation.

-Delete the old Windows 3.1 folder, unless you intend to configure
your computer to run both Windows 3.1 and Windows 98 Second Edition.

Setup Cannot Write to the Temporary Directory:
This message may appear because there is insufficient disk space
for the temporary directory. If space is available on another drive,
type the following command to change the temporary directory location:

Setup /T:<drive letter>:\TEMP

If you do not have space available on another drive, free some disk
space and then run Setup again. See the "Not Enough Disk Space"
Messages section for files that you can delete.

Message SU0010, SU0012, SU0015, or SU0016:
If you receive one of these messages during Setup, see section 8,
INSTALLING WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION WITH WINDOWS NT.

Message SU0011:
If your hard disk is password-protected, Setup will not complete
successfully. You must first remove the password protection. For
more information, see the documentation for your computer.

Standard Mode Messages:
If you get any of the following error messages, remove any memory
managers (such as EMM386.exe, QEMM, or 386Max) from your Config.sys
file, and then run Setup again.

Standard Mode: Invalid DPMI return.
Standard Mode: Fault in MS-DOS Extender.
Standard Mode: Bad Fault in MS-DOS Extender.
Standard Mode: Unknown stack in fault dispatcher.
Standard Mode: Stack Overflow.

NOTE: If you still have problems, add EMM386.EXE back into your
Config.sys file and exclude all ranges. For example:

device=c:\windows\emm386.exe x=A000-FFFF

If you encounter these messages or if your computer stops
responding during Setup, turn on double-buffering in SmartDrive.
Several SCSI hard drives and some ESDI drives require double-
buffering.

To turn on double buffering, add the following line to the
beginning of your Config.sys file:

device=c:\windows\smartdrv.exe /double_buffer+

where "c:\windows" is the path to your Windows directory.

Setup Could Not Back Up Your System Files message:
If you see this error message while Setup is saving your system
files, you may not have enough disk space, particularly on
compressed disks. Free up space on the drive that you are saving
your system files on (the default drive is C) by removing unneeded
files.

Uninstall can require up to 110 MB on many systems. If Setup is not
offering you the choice of saving your system files, you may be very
low on free disk space.

Cannot Continue on This System Configuration:
If you get this message, you may have an older, incompatible disk
partition. Before you run Setup, you must back-up your data and
then repartition your disk.

Message SU0167:
A file or folder called Desktop exists on your computer. Rename or
move your current Desktop folder, and then run Setup again.

SU99xxxx Messages:
SU99 is a prefix that is added to all errors that Setup does not
have a specific error message for. These errors are often caused
by low conventional memory. If you have already created a Startup
disk, quit Setup, shut down your computer, insert the Startup disk,
and restart the computer.

Setup does not have enough conventional memory to check your
computer's hard disks
-or-
Setup could not check the hard drives on your computer:

If you receive either of these errors, Setup was unable to run
ScanDisk to check your hard drives. This can be caused by low
conventional memory, or by errors on your disk that ScanDisk cannot
fix when run from Setup. To fix these errors, reboot your system
to MS-DOS mode and run:

ScanDisk /all

Then run Setup again. If Setup still fails, reboot to MS-DOS mode
and run:

ScanDisk /all /surface

This will take a little longer but will ensure your hard disks are
in good shape. If Setup still won't continue after running ScanDisk
with these options, you should run:

Setup /is

to bypass ScanDisk.

NOTE: Bypassing ScanDisk is not recommended and should be used only
if you are positive your disk(s) contain no errors. If there are
still errors, Setup may fail and your system may no longer boot.


10. HARDWARE NOTES
==================

Plug and play network cards and 16-bit real-mode drivers
--------------------------------------------------------
When you need to run the 16-bit real-mode driver for your network
interface card (NIC) (this is common if you use DLC or another
real-mode protocol), your Plug and Play card may appear not to
function because the 16-bit NIC drivers load before Windows 98
Second Edition has a chance to turn on Plug and Play cards. In
addition, some 16-bit NIC drivers do not recognize Plug and Play
cards (most NE2000 Plug and Play clones fall into this category).

To use your Plug and Play card with a 16-bit NIC driver:

1. Run the Softset utility that comes with your Plug and Play card,
and then set the card to non-Plug and Play mode.

2. In Control Panel, double-click Network and then remove the
network card.

3. In Control Panel, double-click Add New Hardware and follow the
on-screen instructions. Windows 98 Second Edition will detect
your network card.

If you change to a 32-bit protected-mode NIC driver in the future,
you can run Softset again to turn on Plug and Play for your card.

Intel EtherExpress 16 NICs and PCI Computers:
Your system may not respond or you may experience initialization
problems if you are using an Intel EtherExpress 16 NIC in a PCI
computer with certain Diamond Speed Star PCI video cards. These
problems are not related to Windows 98 Second Edition; they occur
on a variety of operating-system platforms. If you experience other
problems with your EtherExpress 16 in a PCI computer, replace the
card before you report the problem to Microsoft.

If you have one of these video cards, contact your vendor about
getting a new video BIOS update:

-Diamond Speed Star PCI video card with BIOS version 1.01
-Diamond Viper PCI VGA Video Adapter
-Diamond Stealth video card, Bios v1.03

IBM Thinkpad Model 750x/755x/360x:
If you have one of these models (including submodels such as C, CE,
CX, CS, and CSE), before you install Windows 98 Second Edition,
check the IBM bulletin board or the THINKPAD forum on CompuServe
for updated BIOS and/or Mwave drivers for your computer.

If you don't upgrade your BIOS, you may have problems if you move
the mouse while your computer is turning suspend mode on or off.

Toshiba Computers:
The ltmodem driver, version 2.16 and earlier, and the Toshiba
Windows 95 Utilities must be upgraded prior to installing Windows
98 Second Edition.

nearest Toshiba support contact.


11. MEMORY MANAGERS
===================
If you have QEMM installed on your computer, it is recommended that
you remove it from your Config.sys file before you set up Windows
98 Second Edition. You can add it back after Windows 98 Second Edition
is installed.

The following memory managers are incompatible with or may cause
problems with Windows 98 Second Edition. It is recommended that you
remove all references to them from your Config.sys and Autoexec.bat
files and use Emm386.exe and Himem.sys, which are provided with
Windows 98, to manage memory instead.

-Allemm4.sys - All Charge 386 Version 3.1
-HPemm386.sys and HPemm486.sys
-HPmm.sys - HP Memory Manager (must remove
before Setup)
-Iemm.sys Memory Manager
-Intel(R) Expanded-Memory Emulator (Ilim386.sys)
-Maximizer Memory Manager (Maximize.com)
-NetRoom Memory Manager (RM386.sys)
-QMAPS Memory Manager Version 5.16
-UMB PRO Version 1.07

NOTE: The documentation for 386MAX recommends that you not set
the EXT parameter below 64. If you set this parameter to 0,
Setup will fail.

NOTE: If you remove the line containing Rm386.sys from your
Config.sys file, you may need to install Himem.sys, which comes
with Windows or MS-DOS. You can do this by adding the following
line to your Config.sys file:

device=<path>\himem.sys

The <path> is the location of your Windows or MS-DOS files
(for example, C:\Windows).


12. DISK-CACHE PROGRAMS
=======================
Before you run Setup, it is recommended that you remove any
third-party disk-cache programs and replace them with Smartdrv.exe,
which is provided with Windows 98 Second Edition.

If you are running one of the following disk-cache utilities,
remove it. In some cases, Setup will remove it for you.

-386MAX disk-cache utility (Qcache.exe) (Do not use
with SmartDrive.)
-Cache.exe disk-cache utility
-Cache.sys disk-cache utility
-Flash disk-cache utility (Flash.exe) (do not use
with SmartDrive.)
-Hyperdisk disk-cache utility (do not use with
SmartDrive.)
-Icache.sys disk-cache utility
-IBMcache.sys disk-cache utility
-Mace disk-cache utility (Mcache.sys)
-Norton Speed Drive Disk utility (SPEEDRV)
-Norton Utilities Version 5.0 and 6.1 (DISKREET, NCACHE)
-PC-Cache (PC Tools disk-cache utility) (must remove
before Setup)
-PC-Kwik disk-cache utility (Pc-kwik.exe)
-PC_Kwik Disk Accelerator
-PC-Kwik Version 1.59 (Pck.exe, Pskscrn.exe, Pckey.com)
-PC Tools(TM) disk-cache utility (Pc-cache.com)
-Secretdisk II disk-cache utility (Fast512.sys) (Do not
use with SmartDrive.)
-Super PC-Kwik disk-cache utility (Superpck.exe)


13. USING TERMINATE-AND-STAY-RESIDENT (TSR) PROGRAMS
====================================================
APPEND (MS-DOS):
Do not use the APPEND utility with Windows 98 Second Edition. It
prevents Windows and Windows-based programs from creating valid
Well-Formed-Path (WFP) names for the files they are using. (A WFP
is the complete name of a file, including the drive letter and
full path specification, starting from the root directory.)

Autocon Version 2.0e, Bootcon Version 1.60, and Boot.sys:
These programs enable you to select from different configurations
when you start your computer. Because Windows 98 Second Edition
Setup modifies only the first sections in your Config.sys and
Autoexec.bat files, you may need to modify these files manually
after Setup. For more information, see the program documentation.

Cubit Version 3.01:
When you are using Cubit with Windows 98 Second Edition, do not
compress the Windows System folder or any file that is loaded
from your Config.sys file.

Before you upgrade to Windows 98 Second Edition, make sure that the
earlier version of Windows is decompressed on your hard disk. You
may recompress the files after you have successfully set up Windows
98 Second Edition.

Doubledisk Version 2.5:
Windows 98 Second Edition may try to access "phantom" disk drives if
you use it with Doubledisk. Phantom drives occur when you use
Doubledisk to create a compressed drive. For example, if you have
drives A, B, and C on your computer and you use Doubledisk to
create drive F, Windows 98 Second Edition and MS-DOS recognize
drives D and E as valid drives, even though they do not exist. You
can use the DRVOFF utility to prevent Windows from recognizing
phantom drives. To order a copy of the DRVOFF utility, contact
Vertisoft.

Infinite Disk Version 2.1:
Infinite Disk version 2.1 does not work properly with Windows 98
Second Edition. Either remove Infinite Disk software from your
computer before you run Setup, or contact your software dealer
for a version of Infinite Disk software that is compatible with
Windows 98 Second Edition.

To remove Infinite Disk from your computer:

1. Decompress any compressed files.

2. Remove the following lines from your Config.sys
and Autoexec.bat files:

iddrv.sys
idres.exe
protect /c

3. Restart your computer, and then run Setup again.

NetWare(R) NetBIOS:
In many configurations, the NetWare NetBIOS TSR is incompatible
with Windows 98 Second Edition. In most cases, Setup will detect
NetWare NetBIOS and remove the startup command from your computer.
However, if you have NetWare NetBIOS set up to start from a location
other than your Autoexec.bat file (for example, from a different
batch file), Setup cannot detect it. In this case, you need to
remove NetWare NetBIOS manually. Windows 98 Second Edition includes
an IPX/SPX-compatible protocol that you can use instead of NetBIOS.
For information about configuring Windows 98 Second Edition to work
with it, see the file Networks.txt.

Newspace Version 1.07:
Windows 98 Second Edition is incompatible with this disk-compression
utility.

Norton Desktop for Windows (Ep.exe):
If the data-recovery program Erase Protect (Ep.exe) is loaded from
your Autoexec.bat file, disable it when you set up Windows 98
Second Edition, especially if you are upgrading over a previous
version of Windows. Because Erase Protect tries to save copies of
all deleted files, you can run out of disk space while running Setup.

It is recommended that you run Erase Protect with a permanent swap
file. If you are using a temporary swap file, exclude files that
have a .tmp or .swp extension from erase protection.

Norton Disklock versions 3.01 and 3.5 do not work correctly with
Windows 98 Second Edition. Either remove this software from your
computer before you run Setup, or contact Symantec product support
for a version of Disklock that is compatible with Windows 98
Second Edition.

For information about how to remove Disklock from your computer,
see the Norton Disklock documentation.

PC Tools Deluxe(TM) Version 7.1 (DATAMON):
If you load PC Tools DATAMON using the \SENTRY+ option, Setup may
fail if you are low on disk space. Do not use the \SENTRY+ option
when you are loading DATAMON.

Do not load DATAMON after loading SmartDrive. If DATAMON is loaded
after SmartDrive, your computer may fail. See the PC Tools
documentation for information about how to remove DATAMON.

PC Tools Deluxe Version 6.0 (DESKTOP):
If you try to start PC Tools from the command prompt within Windows,
your computer may fail or restart itself. These problems also occur
if you use MS-DOS commands from a command prompt within Windows.

Version 7.0 of PC Tools may correct these problems. However, do not
load DESKTOP from a command prompt if it was loaded before you
started Windows. If you do, your computer may fail when you quit
Windows. It is recommended that you run DESKTOP from its PIF,
provided with Windows 98 Second Edition.

SUBST (MS-DOS):
You may encounter problems with SUBST during Setup, but you can
safely add it back after you have installed Windows 98 Second Edition.

UNDELETE:
If you are running UNDELETE with the SENTRY option, Setup may
have problems and you may run out of disk space during Setup.
It is recommended that you remove UNDELETE from your Config.sys
and Autoexec.bat files before running Setup.

NOTE: The SENTRY option creates a hidden directory named Sentry.
When you delete a file, UNDELETE moves the file from its current
location to the Sentry directory. Before you remove UNDELETE from
your Config.sys or Autoexec.bat file, free disk space by using the
UNDELETE/PURGE command on all drives.

If you do not remove Undelete, Setup will disable this command.

NOTE: Refer to the file Intl.txt for information about
installing Pan European settings.
