I blew it, trying to upgrade the driver for my ATI Xpert 128. ATI said it
was the proper driver, but when I installed it (having, per instructions,
first uninstalled the previous one), I couldn't get windows to come up
so I could see it. Eventually, thought I'd better reinstall W98, but
it won't install. It keeps insisting that I haven't room enough to install
W98 (there's plenty, at least 590K of regular RAM plus about 1.5G of XMS).
I've tried things like deleting my whole WINDOWS directory tree (it's on
G:), and even deleting my C:\ directory and doing SYS C:\ to start clean).
From a floppy, I can bring it up with (SCSI) CD's installed or plain,
or in Safe Mode, but it usually won't start the installation ("not enough
room). Sometimes, I've got the SETUP to run, and it goes until it tries
to reboot, at which point, there's no room etc etc.
I'm stumped. I'd hate to clean the disks altogether, because the backup
I have isn't quite up to date, and I can't make it now because, until I
can get into Windows, any back up made under plain DOS will ruin the
long file names.
Comments, advice, assistance will be appreciated. (Anything at all
