A year ago I replaced my old faithfull Dan computer, which worked like a dream for 10 years, with a new good monster which also works well on winxp2.
I replaced Dan because it became very slow - not because it stopped working. I now need a second computer for convenience upstairs for use mainly on wp and ss with occasional internet use and would like to speed up my old Dan. I want to have compatible software for floppy discs .
The Dan spec is Intel 166, 4 gb hard disc of which I can only use 2 gb because of mother board limitation and my hard disc is partitioned to suit, the operating system is win98se - all of which were upgrades over the years .
What are my options ?
Reformat the HD and start again with minimum software - win98se or winxp, works wp and ss etc or clean up the Dan as it stands
What are my best options please, can you direct me to helpfull sites ? - jarani
Dio - thanks, I have BB downstairs, if I go the wireless route, I know I can go online upstairs but can I then use all my software from downstairs online and have none installed upstairs, just the operating system ie win98, I am very keen to have the up/down stairs compatibility so as not to loose any data on my floppy discs which I did in the past due to different versions of works or word, please - jarani
