After that I have to start over as it won't do anything. Severe problems installing Windows usually indicates that something is wrong, probably memory. As it happens, VMM32.VXD deals with memory... Have you tried installing from a different CD? Maybe that file on the CD is corrupted. Maybe someone else here has the file from Win98SE that they can send you. -- Best regards, Scott mailto:Wizard@xxxxxxxx To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
