Thanks for the tips. I'll try them out tonight hopefully and let you know how it went.
I'm not sure if the dual partition would work or not. I've not done much of that personally and not sure of the limits, especially when it comes to accessing files from one partition to another. Sounds good either way.Hey John!!!! you are in luck. It seems that now that you have Windows 98 in your hard drive, you can download the drivers approprietly. I got a responds from Original the people who make the Slim CDRom-PCM CD224.
I believe this is a PCMCIA type connection?
If this is so, your computer will not recognise it until windows has been installed. The PCMCIA bus slot in the actual laptop requires drivers to operate as well. Until Windows is installed you will not be able to use this type of connection.
I do not believe there is a Secondary/media bay available for your PC. Your best hope is to get a docking station with CDR built in or a Parallel connection CDR.
If that is out of the question the only other thing I can think of is to remove the HDD and put it into a similar laptop with a built in CDR.
I'm sorry Franco but these products are not compatible with DOS.
Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

I am wondering if I can some how make a connection with another computer with a CDROM. Using a dos interface and load the Windows 98 that way.
Another way I am trying to workout in my imagination is if I can load Windows 95 with disketter, then see if I can have the CDROM operates. Then open a second patition load the Windows 98SE make sure it runs with the Windows 98 and then delete the First partition. What do you think?
Do the same operations as above using one of the free Linox. Is that posible?
I know that a friend of mine had two different operating system (I think 98 and 2000) loaded in one hard drive with two different partitions.
Or am I pushing the limits.
