I ran an old 98se machine on XP but it was very slow. AMD K62 550meg, 256meg ram, My sons machine was 98 but when I had to get a new HDD a while back I bought an OEM of XP. It is a Duron 900 with 384 meg ram and that is still running now.

Like others on here I'm also using a Win98se PC absolutely fine with a NTL cable BB. I'm wondering if the issue is more to do with the initial setting up of the BB account and the software used to do so, i.e. that is not compatible with Win98 rather than the service itself?
Hi, When I installed my broadband, NTL issued a CD called "Broadband Installer v 1.3" under the name of BROADJUMP. I suggest that you contact NTL by e-mail and ask them to send you a similar CD as it definitely covers Windows 98SE. Try Emails to [email protected]
I've had to sign up a couple of times like a new customer, I use Xandros Linux, I think the problem is more like the helpdesk doesn't support any other system apart from XP or Win 2000. You don't have to use their software to set the system up, it's just a load of bloat that's not needed, so I'm sure you'll be fine with Windows 98.
