I tried for three hours to boot the new software (I just
paid $60 for it) and had zero success. The boot diskette
wouldn't boot. I tried to do so in many creative ways. The
cd-rom wouldn't boot. I couldn't even access my cd-rom from
dos. I didn't even want to try the expert boot. I really
don't consider myself an expert. Right now I consider myself
only frustrated.
My system runs Win98.
Could that make Linux unattainable?
Windows version 4.10.1998
