I installed Win98 for a few reasons, perhaps none of them especially
1. I thought I might have to experiment with older versions of MAME or
2. I was worn out and ready to just try what Craig Conway recommends in
his book "DIY Arcade," which is based on Win98.
3. I didn't have an extra copy of XP sitting around. (I have dozens of
XP licenses, but they are all in use.)
4. I wanted to see how fast Win98 would run on newish hardware. I recall
years ago when I removed Apple System 7 from my Macintosh and went back
to System 6, how the computer seemed so amazingly fast. I was curious to
see if Win98 might have the same effect on me after years of using XP
and now Vista. (Not really.)
The specs are Celeron 2.6GHz, 512MB RAM
I found a guy on CraigsList with two 25" TVs with S-VIDEO ports and
snapped'em up yesterday for $20.00 each. :-0)

The graphics look good,
the image scans correctly on my 25" TV for both horizontal and
games, and vector games, too. The sound is excellent, except I'm
an old sound card without buffering support, so I have to set
latency up a bit.
I'm a happy camper, sitting here trying rom after rom and
Good. Now my questions and perhaps criticisms: why are you running
98?...what are your computer's specs? So you're running via the TV out?
I thought your TV didn't have S-video?
