When I purchased my computer it did not come with a separate copy of Windows 98. Instead, it came with a recovery CD with the operating system and all of the other apps. on he same disc. I have added a few different pieces of hardware since then. I would like to know if there is a way to install individual applications off of the Recovery CD i.e. Windows,Norton Antivirus etc.I was told that since I have changed the hardware setup that I cannot use it unless I use the original hardware setup. Also, I would like to be able to re-install Windows,if needed, without blowing out all of my data and stuff!
