I note on this recent list

click here



'Windows Vista = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC '

that the Win98 version is omitted?

Does anyone know if Hosts does still support that Windows version?

It's been a while since I've old 98 but I should think if you download the Hosts file and stick it in where it should sit in 98 it will work just fine. what you have posted is just where the location of the Hosts file is located in the various systems.

By the way, the Hosts file in Windows 98 is located in c:\windows\hosts

I have actually quoted FROM the site and I noticed today that the Win98SE seems to have gone missing from the list; it used to be in there ...
