  • Question

  • Hello all,I am kinda new at this so not the best at the lingo so plz bear with me.I have 2 questions.

    #1 how do i get software that does not see vista as a O.S to install? I have heard that you can use start/run but i don't know the command and is there a better way anyway?? most of the things I install vista will take over and install them when the software installer gives up,but I have 2 things now that will not install.The most important for now is my wireless internet for my laptop.It comes up saying it needs windows 98ed2 or better so it is aborting,it does go ahead after awile and does a goofy install but then when I try to use it it says there are no wireless devices installed(air card)but my laptop see's it because when I put it in the first time pc installs the drivers and I can look up modems an its there so what the BEEP?? help help plz

    #2 I was reading the blogs an I see there is a newer version of vista than my beta 5384 out so how do I get it? This is fun I like playing with this stuff more than I thought,it gives my brain the same kinda challange as designing and building production machinery or hot rods but a lot cleaner an cooler so I would like to get more involved as I learn and time permits.

    Thanks for listening and any help ya do for me
