Want minimal chaos, have PentIII, 132MB RAM, ATI Expert@Play video, Creative Awe64 sound, DVD, internal 56K Modem, probably getting DSL soon.
System recently upgraded, OS history is Windows through time (3.0, 3.1, '95 and now '98).
Please post COMMENTS as to what's best and why. The best and most complete comments that I'll implement will be awarded points. If, for example, your recommendation is 1 2 or 3, please include brief steps to accomplish (don't want to lose anything important).
1 Upgrade your system to Windows 98 Second Edition for ICS stuff
2 Upgrade your system to Windows 2000 Professional via Upgrade
3 Back stuff up and reformat the 20GB HDD and do a whole new FULL W2000 Professional installation.
Thanks for your concise information.
