Installing LiMP on a windows 98se computer
I'm new to everything linux and i'm trying to install LiMP on a windows 98se computer and the directions on the site aren't working because they're for 2000 so anyone know how to get this done

Welcome to Linux Questions.

I'm not familiar with LiMP, but I just had a quick look over (what I assume is) their website.

It seems they use the Windows boot loader to launch LiMP by modifying the boot.ini file. Unfortunately for you Windows 98 doesn't use boot.ini

You could probably get it working by using GRUB or LILO if you're prepared to 'hack' it in. But that's probably beyond the scope of what a forum can do.

I'd suggest you contact the project maintainer and ask for their advice. They seem reasonably open to email;

Of course you could just take the plunge and replace Windows 98 with Linux ;)

Good luck.
