I have a 2 yr old Gateway 2.26 P4 intel, 533fsb 512k 226 machine that works with the old lady programs that it came with but WILL NOT work with pro sound cards or the MIDI interface needed for CubaseSX based DAW. I no longer care why. I will order new from SonicBlade

What I want to know is is it possible to convert the Gateway to a Win98 machine, as I have editing programs that work flawlessly on my getting older by the second win98 machine.

If I install a new hard drive and boot from a bootable floppy from my 98 machine will i run into roadblock any where? Will this work?

Shouldnt be a problem as long as you have or can obtain all the drivers for your hardware.

Using a new HDD should allow you to experiment since the original will still be around as a backup.
