Specs: Windows 98, P4
I needed to install Windows 98 OS (for an earlier door security software) on my Dimension 2400. Now I can't find any drivers for this setup. Ideas?

Run Windows 98 in a Virtual PC environment, like http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

You need to determine what hardware you have, then search for the drivers. Here's the specs from Dell:

Here's the Drivers & Downloads for Dimension 2400 page:

I realize the drivers are for XP, but if you check them, you'll find the make/model of the hardware devices, then you can search for the 98 drivers. For example, the motherboard chipset is the Intel 845GV & the video is Intel 3D Extreme Graphics. So the 1st place you should look is the Intel website.

You'll also need drivers for the sound & network. The sound is either a Creative Labs Sound Blaster or Analog Devices ADI 198x, you'll have to figure out which one. The network chip is a Broadcom 4401, so look for drivers at the Broadcom site:
