MJ,

   What are the specs for your machine??  I have a P 200MMX and 96 MB of RAM and, from time to time, my control panel takes a tad longer to open.  Although i receive no hourglass, it sometimes takes longer to load than the average.  Also, do you have extra icons placed in the CP due to a software installation?  It could be that your video card is working (for some reason) harder to display the contents of the Control Panel.  Or, if you have somekind of icon in the CP that needs "refreshing/indexing" when Control panel is accessed, that could be the problem.

'Most' win 95 software will run on 98.  However, i suggest you check with the manufacturer's webpage to see if there are 98 patches or updates before you install it.
