So, I have a couple instruments that MUST run on Win95 or possibly Win98 and require an ISA slot. System right now is a Pentium II 350 MMX. I happen to have a SuperMicro P6DGE with dual P3 700/256/100 cpus in a server box a friend gave to me. I've found at least one website that says Win98 can go on a dual pentium III system, here
. Am I going to need any special drivers to put Win98 on this server board? I suppose that under XP Pro I'd see both CPU's and under Win98 I would only see one of them. Still its got to be a quicker system than the Pentium II.
Its got two sticks of 168 pin Dimms in it. Not sure of capacity
I can put a Matrox G400
I doubt I need a sound card but I have a TBSC if needed
I have a 32GB SSD with an IDE to SATA adapter that I've been using for the Pentium II Win956 box
I have a SATA DVD with IDE to SATA adapter that has been working fine in the Pentium II Win95 box
I have the working 100baseT NIC from the Pentium II Box.
and I have an ISA HP 82355 GPIB card that runs the instrument.
I don't have a power supply but I think I could loot one from one of my old super 7 systems.
Edit: Old system not a Pentium Pro, its a slotted Pentium II 350 MMX with a passive heatsink.
Edit2: Dimms not DDR
