is it an upgrade?
if so, copy the win.com on your system to win.org and delete win.com.
Proceed with setup

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Sounds like a memory problem to me (most suwin faults are) - have you upgraded your memory.

What's the past history of this system?

Did it work OK before the Win98 upgrade?

The information in this article applies to:

SYMPTOMS
========
 
When you are installing Windows 95, you may receive the following error
message:
 
   SUWIN caused a General Protection Fault in module SUWIN.EXE at
   0006:6EB8
 
CAUSE
=====
 
This error can occur when you upgrade an installation of Windows 3.x with
more than 1200 TrueType fonts installed. This error halts Setup and may
require you to restart your computer.
 
RESOLUTION
==========
 
You can still run Windows 3.x after you receive this error message. Remove
some of the TrueType fonts in Windows 3.x so that the total number of
installed TrueType fonts is 1200 or less, and then run Windows 95 Setup
again.

TO MATTCEI:

I was able to install '98 by reinstalling '95 and doing a step by step confirmation (F8 "safe mode menu) to minimize wy conventional memory usage.  Please respond with a token answer and I'll reward you the points based on your thorough investigation.


Thank You,
