Although Zone labs has ended its support of Windows 98 you can still get an older version of the Zone Alarm firewall that works well with 98. The reason I recomoend an older version of Zone Alarm over some current free firewalls that support 98 is that in my opinion Zone Alarm, even an older version is a far better firewall than most created today.

Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

1st Puppy Linux

Sinking 98

System Requirements

Puppy has been tested on a very old machines but the best results for the standard release of Puppy Linux to run at a reasonable pace have been achieved with the following:
* CPU : Pentium 166MMX
* RAM : 128 MB physical RAM for releases since version 1.0.2 or failing that a Linux swap file and/or swap partition is required for all included applications to run; 64 MB for releases previous to 1.0.2
* Hard Drive : Optional
* CDROM : 20x and up

Install or Live CD

You can just boot from the live CD to try Puppy to see if you like it. But an installation option is also avaiable:
As Puppy has evolved, installation to hard drive has become easier and easier. I wrote a program, called the Puppy Universal Installer, that installs Puppy to many different media, including hard drive. In fact, it allows very specific installations, to USB, SATA or IDE hard drives -- even to a CF (Compact Flash) card plugged into a IDE adaptor ("IDE" is the standard traditional type of internal hard drive interface, so the CF-adaptor adapts the CF card to the IDE ribbon cable). The Universal Installer does not need lengthy explanations -- just use it and follow the step-by-step instructions.
You need to have a running Puppy to use the Universal Installer, so it is required to boot up the live-CD. When Puppy is running, look in the "Setup" menu and you will find an entry "Puppy Universal Installer".

* Run very nicely from an IDE Compact Flash drive via a method we call "frugal install"

Windows 98 USB Mass Storage Device Drivers

USB flash drives and other USB mass storage based devices are becoming more and more common. Unfortunately, they often do not come with drivers because Windows Me, 2000, XP and Vista all come with generic drivers already installed. This way all you need to do is plug the drive in, Windows will recognise it and you will automatically see the drive in My Computer. Windows 98, especially in it's second edition (also known as Windows 98SE), handles USB fairly well, however there are no generic/universal mass storage device drivers preinstalled in the operating system, so you will need to install some additional drivers for it. Some manufacturers do however, provide the Windows 98 drivers on CD, others have them available to download, and others simply do not have them available at all.
If you are using Windows 98, and you do not know the manufacturer of the storage device, or you can't find the drivers, what can you do? Fortunately, there are some generic Windows 98 USB mass storage device drivers available that work with most such devices. This means that these drivers will work with many makes and models of the following:

* USB Flash Drives (also known as Pen Drives, or Thumb Drives)
* Digital Photo and Video Cameras (that connect to the PC via USB)
* USB Hard Drives
* MP3 Players (including Apple iPod from v2.4)
* Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP)

Installing the drivers

System Properties
Before installing the drivers, it is important to know that there are 2 main versions of Windows 98, and they both handle USB differently. You must install the appropriate version of the drivers dependent upon your version of Windows 98. In order to determine your Windows version, please do the following:
* Right click on My Computer and select Properties
* On the System Properties page that opens up click on the General tab, if it is not already on that page.
* Under the System heading, look for the version number (see System Properties)
o Version 4.10.1998 is the original version of Windows 98 (98FE)
o Version 4.10.2222 is Windows 98 Second Edition (98SE)
* Click the link below for the download and installation instructions for your version of Windows 98

Windows 98FE USB Mass Storage Device Drivers

These drivers offer generic USB mass storage support for the original release of Windows 98, sometimes called Windows 98 First Edition, or 98FE. You should check your version of Windows 98 before installing. Once installed USB mass storage devices should work within Windows 98.
These drivers include generic USB 2.0 controller drivers adding USB 2.0 support for computers that support it.
To install the drivers

1. Download and install the Windows 98 Service Pack (35.5Mb)
2. Download to your desktop the driver file from the Download section below
3. Remove ALL drivers for USB flash drives in Device Manager
4. Remove ALL drivers for any USB 2.0 controllers (many have an uninstall option)
5. Remove ALL unknown devices from Device Manager
6. Run the exe file you downloaded, and follow the instructions, rebooting after installation
7. When the computer boots up again, it may detect new USB 2.0 controllers, in which case you may need to reboot again

You should note, that these drivers are generic, and they may not work with some devices. It is also only intended for the English version of Windows 98, although there are some other language versions below. Installing on the wrong version of Windows may cause problems with your operating system. There is no guarantee that they will work with your device, but our experience shows that they work with most without problem.
Please also note that these drivers are not warranted in any way, and no support is offered for them; you use at your own risk. As a precaution, whenever making changes to your operating system, we recommend you do a full system backup.
