Installing Windows 98

Windows XP Service Pack 2 is out, and here I am installing Windows 98 again. I'm still keeping Windows XP Pro on my old Compaq Presario - in another partition. It's been a while since I did this, so I was a bit unprepared, and had to hunt around for Device Drivers. The Windows 98 install seems quite antiquated compared to that of Windows 2000 or XP.
Then I had to install all the security updates. What a drag...

Once Windows 98 is configured, I'm intending to try Windows 98 Lite - a program which slims down an existing Windows 98 installation.
