    Help - What OS????

    After recently purchasing GOS and LOP I realized that 500mg of RAM on my Windows 98 dedicated Giga machine is not cutting so:

    I bought more Ram only to find out that my motherboard didn\'t more than 500mg.

    I bought a new motherboard only to find out Windows 98 doesn\'t support more that 500mg.

    WHAT OS SHOULD I BE RUNNING? I need to take advantage of the full 1.5 gigs that are now installed in my motherboard.

    Please Win2000 or ME or XP?

    Someone please help.

    Ahhh more of this \'Win98 doesnt support more than 512mb\' rubbish. I don\'t know where all you guys read that stuff.... Do a search on these forums and you\'ll see countless posts on this topic. Anyway what is your problem. Why dont you believe Win98 will use more than 512mb ram?

    Please Simon, help me. Tell me how to use 1.5 gigs of RAM with Win98.

    Vcache?
    MaxPhysPage?

    Please...

    My problem is that after I installed my new MotherBoard with the 1.5 gigs and reinstalled Windows 98 I got the error message \"Insufficient Memory to Initialize Windows\". I looked this error up on Yahoo and got this page:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q184447

    in which microsoft (I am asssuming the authority on the subject) explains that Windows 98 does not support more than 512mb of RAM.

    After I added the \" MaxPhysPage=30000\"

    command in the system.ini file Windows98 booted.

    I have done search on this forum under Vcache, found a lot of posts, but nothing in the way of a solution.

    Dude - email me please. I am desperate. freethinker@pipingunlimited.com.
