    I don't know if it's required, but that's what I'm using, along with the rest of the "unoffocial" SP4.

    I used 98Lite for a long time and it did achieve its goals of running faster and taking up less RAM, but installing new software was always a crapshoot because you didn't know if the lack of the IE-ified Windows 98 Explorer would cause problems with it or not. Eventually the hardware I was using got powerful enough that the benefits of 98Lite no longer outweighted its drawbacks, and I replaced it with a standard installation of 98SE.

    I found the effort to even make it work was not worth my time. Ultimately unless something desperately needed 98 I would just run 95 OSR2.

    Which would be better to get 98Lite or XPLite? And how would they be Activated? Can they be run off of a 8 ot 16 GB USB?

    I didn't know these were actual products. I think the 98Lite I had was a beta, it was free anyway. I though it was just a package put together by J. Random Hacker who really hates I.E. I would guess now it's more polished.

    A few clicks on the site you posted gets you here:

    You get the license key via email.

    98Lite or XPLite? depends on whether you have XP or 98.

    Where did you get your copy at? I like to try it before I buy any of them.

    I need to go to my basement and find my 95, 98, ME and XP CD so I can install one of these. The XP SP3 is a copy I got with my Dell Laptop if it will work.

    My old business Pc had a Windows 95 shell in a 98se install

    I liked using it to remove IE4 and then do a full ie5.5 install, bloat was down and available memory went up.
