    Hi,

    I need some copies of Windows 98 SE. I'm not sure what the "rules" are for selling your copy, so maybe someone can clarify them for me. I need the full install licences.

    If someone had 98SE, and upgraded to XP, they need to keep the original 98SE discs, right? But if someone had a computer with Windows 98SE and they no longer use the computer at all (i.e. it was thrown away, parted out, or overwritten with a full install of XP), then they can sell their original Windows 98 SE, right?

    Anyway, I'd like to pay $25 if anyone has an old copy lying around.

    Thanks.

    FWIW, it is illegal to sell MS OS (or any MS software) that were bundled with machines (see EULA)..

    I have a copy of Windows 98 (first version) that came with my long-gone Gateway. I also have the Windows 98 Second Edition Updates disc (ordered direct from the MS website a couple of years ago).

    As per above, you can have the first version for free, but the updates disc will cost you $15 (shipped), and they stay together.[​IMG]

    I assume that's legal? I can also assure you that no computer is currently "tied to" this piece in any way.
