Karen: My answers are embedded at the "*" following each question below.

You are an amazing bunch of guys who know a lot not only about structural engineering but also about computers. It looks that your responses made me decide to get a Windows 98 machine with some modifications (additional software that chooses the OS I wish to run and maybe more). I have two more questions: Question One: If I choose to execute DOS software that requires minimum of 600KB of FREE conventional memory under DOS (600KB Largest Executable Program Size, LEPS), will Win'98 let me do it? Probably anyone running Win 98 machine can easily check it. * No problem. When you set up the "shortcut" to the DOS program, you can control the memory usage in the properties setup. I've gone somewhat beyond 600K without any problem. If, it turns out that, standard LEPS under Win 98 is less than 600KB, can I increase it to a minimum of 600, or what has to be done to run such program under DOS. (One particular program that I use often is not designed to take advantage of expanded/extended memory). * Not applicable, see above. Question Two: If Question One is answered in a satisfactory way, what utility programs shall I install on the computer to have the best possible control of the machine. Please keep in mind that the cost of such utilities has to be reasonable because I am not a mistress of Bill Gate$. I will listen very carefully what you have to say on the subject. * I'm not Bill's mistress either! You really don't "need" any extras. Win98 has more than a dozen great utilities tucked away on the CD. You will find them in the Powertoy and ResKit directories. Beyond that, I only recommend freeware. You will find a large selection at www.nonags.com. Thank you for your kind future responses. * You are quite welcome!
