I am running Windows 98 in a Gateway G6-333C with 96MB of RAM. I have a CD to upgrade Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 to Windows 98 Second Edition. Can I use this CD to upgrade my Windows 98 installation? The purpose of the upgrade is to support a Concord EyeQ 3042AF digital camera which I have bought, but not yet installed because Concord tells me they do not support anything earlier than Windows 98 SE. Thanks for your help . Andy

Greetings, nineiron!
>> Can I use this CD to upgrade my Windows 98 installation?

If the above does not work, go to Start > Run and type ren win.com win.old and hit OK.  Then do the Windows 98 SE install.

Best wishes, war1
