    I need help!!!

    I have an old P90 with 20MB RAM. It currently has 3 harddrives in it, I plan to replace the second one with atleast 15gigs and take out the third one. For some reason, the 3rd one has always came up in DOS with some problem, but hitting F1 always bypassed it. Also, the SYSTEM.INI calls up all of these files which I have deleted. I want to know how to clean all that up. I am only using the first drive for programs (winamp, palmamp, pcanywhere, etc)... and the second one I put in will be for .mp3s only. Will the problem with the 3rd drive stop when I uninstall it? How do I clean up the system.ini? How do I make WINAMP the shell and change it back when I want to use pcanywhere or something?

    I don't have a CD or disk set for WIN95... I have heard that 95 loads faster than 98? Also, how do I get PowerToys for 95 to bypass ScanDisk?

    For heaven's sake, go buy a copy of Windows. It only costs like $80, and I'm sure you could find it cheaper than that if you try. Or go borrow one from someone...they're not that hard to find.

    Also, 98lite will load just as fast as Win95. You can get it at www.98lite.net . Just don't forget to save Explorer.exe, Shell32.dll, and Comdlg32.dll from your Windows 95 installation on a disk first. 98lite will ask for them to incorporate the old explorer into Win98
