I kinda figured that was the situation. Thanks! :)

Was playing with my old Win98se box tonight and thought that I could use it for Geocaching with GPSBabel as the Windows FE page says that Win98 is supported. Unfortunately, GPSBabel-1.4.1-Setup.exe fails to install with a message that tells me to "Upgrade my Windows version." Sadly, I need the latest version of GPSBabel as I have a Delorme PN-40. Does this mean there is not Win98 support any more? If not, it's not a big deal, I have compiled GPSBabel on my Linux box but it would have been fun to use the old Win98 box for something other than Sim City Classic! :)
Sorry about that. While there are parts of GPSBabel that probably do still work on 98 (like file->file translations) I'm pretty sure that the USB support for devices like the PN-40 is too weak to handle our needs.
I should track down the places where we mention 95, 98, and NT and raise the floor to XP. I see it's on our front page (yikes) but there are probably other places where the current truth needs to be (re)written.
