Doug,
Complicated question, but in a sense, Win98,win98SE and Win ME do not
utilize large ammmounts of RAM as efficiently as Windows NT 4(which is
no longer supported for free, like SPs and security updates by
Microsoft) Win2000, Win XP/Home and Win XP/Pro.  Some applications
require a large amount of RAM to run with in addition to the memory
required by the OS.  Generally 256Mb will work ok for most of the above
Os's and most of the applications you would run. 

IF you can afford it and your hardware and applications are supported,
an upgrade to windowsXP will bring stability and performance that far
exceeds that which you experience with Win98

Anyone...


        True or false?

        It doesn't matter if your Win98 machine has 256k ram, 512 or
640. The
operating system only recognizes and uses up to 256.

        If true, is there a ram use difference between Win98 and second
edition?
