I'm thinking about putting win 98 on my sony vaio (after it crashed and gf deleted OS etc.) and wanted to know if anyone has done that before. I read there might be driver problems with USB and the network card. Has anyone tried yet?

    Windows 98se is the earliest windows which supported USB so that is what you'll need.  Have to check internet/Sony Vaio site for drivers.  Don't know if this will work but a lot of drivers will need to be checked.  Also, may not have drivers for everything in 98se.  
    1.  Do you have a Restore CD?
    2.  Might want to consider Linux?

    3.  Linux Download?  Says it is but I can't verify at work - Sorry.

    4.  Information about Linux?

    Hope this Helps!!!
