Windows 98

    I have need of setting up a win98 laptop. Which laptop would be
    recommended? I'll have to buy it on eBay or some such, and the win98
    drivers will need to be available on the manufacturers' site. Ive
    thought about an Inspiron 5000, and a Latitude C400. Beyond that I
    don't know. Anyone have any suggestions?
    TIA, RJ

    Dells are nice for that kind of thing.
    I'd steer clear of the 5000. quirky and non standard parts.
    C-series is ok.
    Good news is that they made a zillion of them and they're generally
    available at yard sales for a buck or so.

    Assume you have your reasons for 98, but 2k is a much better option
    for most things.
