I tried to install win 98 on a new system, all other components ran previously under win 98,
but i got crazy error messages, for example when running quake2 :winsock initialisation failed.
Is there a known bug ?

it looks like Win98 overrote a file Quake 2 is looking for.  This happened to me on some other programs like my Adaptec Easy CD Creator Pro.  I solved it by reinstalling the program-- so you should try uninstalling Quake and reinstalling it.  Or just reinstalling it if it won't uninstall.  Key files will return.

winsock is the file that enable all of the internet communications-- and quake using Winsock for network play.  Reinstalling Quake will perhaps correct a path or register the newer version of winsock with the game!
