We have a complex audio system at our radio station running on Windows 98. Boxes are PII 433Mhz, 128Mb RAM, 12Gb HD. These Win98 machines handle high volumes of .mpg audio files, running 24-hours a day. And that's about it -- 24 hours, after which Win98 slows to a crawl, the audio skips or hiccoughs on the air, and we have to go to an audio CD while we reboot the computers. We have a similar problem with our newsroom computer, totally unrelated to the other audio system.
Does anyone know the magic bullet to fix this apparently inherent problem in Win98's disk caching module? It's ruining our day.
