Left click on the start button woody and then right click on the "My Computer" Icon and you can have it on your desktop just as in 98se Not a shortcut either but a full Icon. You can do the same for "My Documents" as well. j.
Yes, your Athlon, same as mine is a good chip and will work 98se very fast. I'm still using my 1800XP with XP it does seem to be faster in most ways except for startup, 29 seconds but then I had 98se trimmed right down and it would really shift.
I know you and se are firm Friends but I think you will come to like XP over the weeks ahead. I did. and wouldn't want to change back now. ;o)
