Hi there,
I've tried to install Win 98 (upgrade or clean install) and during the final reboot I get a "windows protection error". When I remove the line in the system.ini with msmouse.vxd in it, it boots just fine, without mouse support of course. Win 95 and Win 2000 work just fine. If the msmouse.vxd is the problem, is there way to get an updated driver ?
