Newbie needs help
Posted on 2003-03-15
I just found this site and first off, I'd like to say that I think it's awesome here!!! There are so many people answering everyones questions and really fast also!
OK, I hope someone can answer my question.
I'm upgrading an older computer (kids gaming computer) from win95 to win98.
The computer is an Aptiva IBM. The operating system (win95)was installed using a clean install from a recovery disk. (fdisk and format first, then used the recovery disk that was included with the computer. It's full version 95)
Now, I don't want to do a full clean install again as there are way too many games as well as the internet suff and files on here. I'd really prefer to just throw my win98 CD into the cdrom and install 98 over 95.
Any precautions i should take?
I've made copies of important files and the like, but (here's one question) how can I keep a copy of all my kids emails? I already exported the address book and the bookmarks to floppy, can I do the same with the important emails that they don't want to lose?
Any problems with what I'm about to do?
Thanks for any and all help.
