What do you want "to know for sure".  If you want more information ask for the sort of information you want.  Be more specific about what programs you are concernecd about.  As I have said already my system is not having any problems with a broad mix of DOS, Windows 3.1, Windows 3.11 and Windows 95 applications.  Without more specific questions I suggest this is your question answered

Windows 98 should handle ALL software previously designed for Windows 95, 3.1 or DOS. This however, is only in theory and there are bound to be a few apps that will break under Windows 98. However, ALL the ones I have been using seem to work perfectly.

A noteble exception is that Internet applcations made for 16-bit winsocks WILL NOT WORK under Windows 98 because it uses a 32-bit winsock.
