Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

As far as I remember Win98 disks are not bootable.
You need to boot from a win98 floppy and start install from that.
Once you booted up in DOS you can always point to run the setup.exe from the Win98 files copyed on your HD.
And as far as copying is concerned, just use CD copy in your burner software.
In case of a damaged original as you have, most burning software give you the option to first write a immage to your HD and use that immage to copy your disk.

If you have a cd cleaning kit, it could be worth giving it a spray & wipe. CD's that have been laying around for a while or have light scratches or finger prints & greeose, can often be improved by cleaning that muck off including fine loose elements from a scratch of the disk itself.

Yeah a good clean is always usefull before copying.
And you could even try to polish the scratches out with a mild carpolish.
But if you want to try that do a test first on a useless CD !!

You can create a bootable CD from the bootable floppy.
But I doubt that Win98 can be persuaded to write the Win98 bootdisk files to HD instead of floppy.
So it's off to the shop.....

Oh my..... those bad Win98 memories are coming back.........
Like you had a driver on your harddrive and Win98 would only want to install one from a floppy.......
I suspect Bill G. owned a floppy factory.

Well actually for me WinMe was sort of working well.
Never looked back offcourse when I finally installed Win2K but compared to 98, Me was a improvement.

Hey, RaaF...

Ever noticed how difficult it is to explain to XP users that there is a fantastic upgrade available from M$ that solves all the problems with XP ???

Of course, I mean the removal of XP and the installation of Windows 2000 Professional !!!

Ha Ha Ha all you XP loonies !!!


Of course, Billie and the Dudes don't exactly make it easy to remove XP and replace it with a superior vintage product !

Ah well XP.......
I had the intention of using it as my primary OS over 2K
I even thought I had it under controll .
Had it looking normal, had it sort of behaving normall......not doing things by itself I never asked it to do....
Went for the SP2 and that's where it all went wrong.
After the installation of SP2 my comp went into a bootloop... starting up shutting down, and so on.
Tried all the fixes even completely disableled the buffer overflow thingy.
To no avail.
XP suggests I have bad RAM....

Went back to a date before SP2 with system restore.
But the dammage is done, XP is instable it freezes when I run a few things at the same time.
(wich ideed looks like having bad ram)

BUT Win2K is running like a charm on the same computer with the same RAM.
I have Phex running, I download from, and browse newsgroups.
Browse the www with Firefox.
Listen to music or watch Video and all at the same time.
No problems at all with Win2K !!
