In Windows 95, one trick for speeding the computer up was to tell Windows 95, in the performance settings, that the role of the computer was a network server. Is this still a good thing to do under Windows 98? If not - why not - whats changed?

It is still okay, because all it does is increase the disk cache size, which is good.

I'm a MSDN Beta Tester.
As if that wasn't enough, this weekend my father is going to a black-tie gala in Washington, D.C. in honor of his being a finalist for the ComputerWorld Smithsonian Award. He will find out if he is the winner of this top IT/IS award there. He was nominated by Bill Gates himself and will be attending a private Microsoft party before the gala.
