&*@*^%!^@#

My computer always manages to get fucked up in the oddest ways.

First, it stopped playing cds. (It will install from them, but it won't actually play from them.) Now it won't install anything *not* from a cd.

Hence I currently have no IM. (Because I uninstalled Trillian to try to fix something, and now I can't install it again.)

I so need to reinstall the OS. Pity I have no OS cd.

update: got IM back, by downloading a new zip file instead of an installer. I've discovered much more about the various mysteriously named processes running on here. but I still can't play Diablo II.

Re:
Win 98 2nd ed, though I'd be willing to upgrade to 2k or possibly (*shudder*) even XP...

XP
I can get you XP, but nothing lower. How much RAM do you have? I would not reccomend XP with less than 256.

Re: XP
I've got 512, so XP should work fine. Do you know how good XP is at being backwards-compatible? I can't afford a new copy of Photoshop :)

If someone can get you CDs, I think I can manage to 'lose' a license code for you.

Win98 SE
Heather, I've got a copy of Win 98 SE, from my old rental unit (burned).

I use regular 98, so if you want it it's yours. Send me your mailing address, & I'll put it in the mail this weekend.

Re: Win98 SE
Sorry... it also has a licence code from the rental place. Will send that with it

Re: Win98 SE
If you want an extra code just in case, lemme know. :D

Otherwise, yay for the goodness of people's hearts, and CD-Rs.

Re: Win98 SE
Looks like I've got a few local options, so don't trouble yourself :) but thanks anyway!
