Subject: [Leica] re OT Browsers Problem - IE6 vs Win98
From: "David M. Dorn" <>

I recently came to the conclusion that Win98 does not like IE6.  
Microsoft has announced they are no longer supporting Win98.  My guess 
is that as they make changes in IE6 they are not too worried about 
conflicts in Win98.   Just one more way for Bill Gates and company to 
shake the money tree.

My Win 98 system became so buggy over the last 6 months that I replaced 
it with the cheapest Dell I could get.  I do all my graphics works on a 
MacG4.  The PC is just used for those thing where no comparable Mac 
software is available....mostly astronomy software.

Before you give up you should try increasing you memory to at least 
256megs.   I find that IE6 runs fine on the Dell under WinXP with 
256megs and XP is supposed to be a real memory hog.
