I know DSKINI and MESS work great in Windows 98. I just threw together a P2
system with an old 360K drive and no problems yet.

I'm planning on building up a Windows 98 system with both
3.5" and 5.25" drives, USB CF card reader, and plenty of
HDD space to use with Portal 9, various emulators, and
Can anyone think of anything else I may need?
I decided on Win98 since it still uses real DOS and not
the psuedo DOS on 2K and XP and it supports the older 720K
drive format. This info I had gleened from the list, and
I may have misunderstood what some people posted, so
please correct me if I am wrong.
Also, from what I have read from the list, Win98 is the
most compatable Windows OS with the emulators. I have
tried to get the DK emulator from GCC (check is in the
mail) to work with 2K, but I can never access the
configuration routine and all I get when I run the program
is the standard CoCo screen, so I'try it on a Win 98 box.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
