Using same ISP account on dual boot system

  2jaycee 16:01 28 Jan 2006

I have Win 98 on drive C and Win XP on drive D

How can I connect to the internet via Win 98, using same ISP and account details as I use on Win XP.

At the moment If I wish to connect to the Net whilst using Win 98 I have to reboot to XP

Both O/S's cannot be running at the sametime.

So shutdown one to use the other with internet access.

Who is your ISP and how d you connect? Via an icon on the desktop? Or does the internet just work when Windows starts?

My isp is vergin (dial up via icon)
Iwant to use same account on Win 98
Will it allow me to duplicate my account details ie user id etc or will I have to initiate a completely new account

You can use your same details.

Thanks Powwwerless I think I have managed it.
For some reason it is much slower than using Winxp
