    You should try Slackware instead of Redhat. Of course neither crash. You're lying about it crashing. Or you are using or writing sh!tty software.

    Yet you still make the following statement:

    Stating that you are A+ certified isnt really increasing your credibility. Certs dont really mean that much, and more than a handfull of us have that one, its the easiest one to obtain. Several people here have no certs and could gain 90% of them in their sleep.

    I also serviced many, many machines at Gateway and NEVER could it e solely blamed on ME. Yes, i have had ME related problems, but not as widely spread as many claim.

    I think BMJ phrased it best, and i would love to see documentation as to why it was ONLY ME that cause "hundreds" or out of the box problems, because i dont buy it.

    My Linux sucks statement was taken all wrong. How does saying that one OS or another sucks contribute to the original topic?

    Ceritfications may mean nothing to you, RoD, but to buisnesses it means EVERYTHING. Hell I've been programming on my own and fixing PC's for a heck of alot longer than those that just come out of school could ever imagine. I can run circles around people and make there heads swim at the speed of light. But no company wants to take a programmer, or any profession for that matter, serious untill you get a degree. So as to having a certification means alot. Sure it is easy, but only if you can answer the questions wrong. My test for A+ was about 90% wrong answers to pass. It was a load of malarky. And for many of people it is not easy to pass.

    If someone asks how you can dual boot 98 and ME, telling them ME "is the biggest piece of crap Microsoft has released" is arrogant bull. Go slap yourself.

    Of course like everyone else said though, just use a 3rd party boot manager.
    Actually, I have never said this:

    "ogmz MEi s teh sux0rz"

    However, I know the point you are making, so lets go with the thought. Yes, there are a lot of people who get down on Windows Me. A lot of the same play up 98 SE. Personally I have never used 98 SE. I had 98 on my computer when I bought it. It ran very badly. I got a pre-release/trial version of Me from a friend of mine, and since it ran quite a bit better than the 98 I was running, I stuck with it, and eventually ended up buying the OS, which I still have sitting on a shelf. I used Me for a couple of years, dual booting with Linux and on it's own. I have found through my own experience that things start out well from a clean install, and then it goes downhill after that. Eventually it ends up like velius said where stuff starts to disappear, and if you want to do a system restore, its too bad because everything is so corrupt it won't let you. After a while it gets to the point where you have to reboot at least once per session. That is unnacceptable to me. Occasionally I have to reboot my Linux box. That is more than I would like. Anyway, my experience has been that I do not prefer Windows Me over against the Linux OS. As far as this having nothing to do with the original topic, you are correct. However this is a discussion board, and the original question was satisfactorily answered, was it not?

    Congratulations, that only sounds heavily cocky, whereas i was expecting it to sound saturated in cockiness by the time i finished the sentence.

    Your right, no company will take you serious without a degree, thats why Carmack didnt get hired and works as a janitor for a living.

    Certs dont mean jack anymore. Any two baked half wit can get certified in almost anything, even cisco is becoming a joke. I never said they never mean anything, i said they dont mean anything here.

    For instance, pull your head out of your ass and take a look around. Its pretty stupid to have such a cocky attitude when your probably only average compared to many, many of the people who post here.

    I'm not saying im better than you, even tho its in my opinion that i am at this point in time, im saying your not the top $$$$ here, or possibly anywhere but your moms basement for that matter, and the attitude you have like that sucks a fat one.

    RoD you are nothing more than a childish A$$hole. You're just a kid. I expect that kind of sh!t from you. Until you've been there, you won't know what it's like. So know your role and shut your mouth jabroni!

    Erm, most of you guys have misunderstood my question. I didn't complain about ME. I don't know whether ME is good or bad.

    All I need to know is how to install ME and 98 in a same machine. NOT 98 - ME - XP - XP. It's ME - 98.

    BTW, XOSL link is dead.
    It's unfulfilled dreams that keep you alive.

    lol...well now, looks like BMJ was correct, and netboy was not helped by any of this. So no xosl for now. You might want to have a look at this page. Scroll down a little til you get to the 'Dual Boot Windows!' part. Might find something useful there.

    I've tried dual booting Windows and Linux, Windows 98 and Windows XP with no problems.

    How do I dual boot my machine to Windows 98 and Windows ME? Can anybody help? I need this dual boot because the Windows 98 is going to be a Chinese version.

    I plan to have ME on c:\ and 98 on d:\

    As long as I can dual boot ME and 98 it's fine. Thanks!
    You mentioned Linux... if you have the space on the HD, why not just install ME, then install 98, and then install Linux and let the bootloader take care of the dual booting? (I'm kinda assuming you have two hard drives. I don't know if you can install two versions of Windows on one hard drive, but you probably can)

    ROFLMAO means rolling on floor laughing my *** off. I was making fun of you.
    Away.
