I want to install win 98, but it says I have to have 95b. I only have '95' Can I install it any way?, and if not how do I get 95b. It also says something about  the fat 16, or 32. My machine doesn't tell me what I'm running. How can I find out? It's not on the properties for my hard drive. I have a pent.200, 64 mem., Surlee

To find out what you have for HD, go to your control panel, choose system.  Click the performance tab.  You will see file system:  It should say 32bit.  If not, you have a FAT16.  Basically, Win98 will upgrade that to FAT32.  Usually it gives you more disk space.  

Now, as for win95b, that was released via OEM (bought it from someone like gateway).  So you cannot "get" it.   However, there is no reason you cannot install Win 98 now.  The setup is designed to work even on win 3.1 machines.  Just before you upgrade, backup your important data.

OK, I installed it, but now My colar is bad. I went into display settings, and I only have a choice of 16, or 2 colors. I don't have 256 any more.I can't fix it.

I didn't realize this question was still on here. I'm sorry I haven't taken care of this sooner. I don't have that PC any more. How do I rate this?
