Just signed up this afternoon - this is my first question
My cousin has an old VAIO subnotebook (the PCG_505G) that runs at 200mHz and has the memory maxed out at 94meg.
She had 2000 on it and it just ground along. The problem is it has no CD drive and I wanted to put 98 on it.
No 98 on diskette (of course) but I had 95 and got the PCMCIA NIC card going. Then I followed a suggestion from here and copied the 98 files from over my network, ran setup and VOILA! It worked.
She wants a CDROM or burner for the thing and rather than spending $$$ for a PCMCIA card and drive, I got a Syba USB2 card. Installed it and it shows up properly in Device Manager.
Here is the problem: when I plug the burner (an LG in an external case) into the USB2 port, Win98 recognizes it as a USB2 device and asks for drivers. Well, what drivers is it asking for?
In XP,all this happens automatically so I have never given these drivers a second thought.
