    A better suggestion might be an nLighted version of Win2k. Cut a copy to install on a 486DX4-100/64MB. Usable, as long as I don't push it too hard.

    Win98 is pretty much a slug on a 486. Already tried (and reverted back to Win95). MS "minimum" requirements are a 486-66/16MB and realistic minimum is a P120/64MB.

    If you're thinking of jumpering over the resistor, you may damage the keyboard port circuit or other circuit. Best to determine the value of the resistor and replace it.

    Some mention of a 32MB RAM Maximum around the net. If you're thinking of doing anything serious (Win3x) then at least upgrade to 16MB. Not sure if the CPU upgrades; you might want to check this...

    And there's no reason you couldn't replace radials with axials (or vice-versa) either, as long as the leads are long enough and there's not any issue with clearance.

    Most designs are largely influenced based on cost. At that time, the likely requirements were cheaper with an radial capacitor than a axial one. The next highest priority is usually real-estate...

    Shouldn't be a problem. Make sure you observe correct polarity when replacing. As long as a capacitors stated voltage is equal or greater (up to a point), then it theoretically should work.
