I just got it today and did a clean install in my new ibm 34gxp 20.5 gig hdd. I have looked around a while now and cannot find a few things that are in a different place. Scandisk,how to set a perm swap file,how to put my favorites(web pages)into the start menu,how to set DMA on my drives. I am also using the promise ultra66 controller so it is probably already dma on my hardrive but what about my cdrom.And I cant get DX7a to install, do I not need it?Thanks for any help.

Scandisk:
Doubleclick "This Computer"
Rightclick the HDD you want to check!
Chose "Preferences"
Second tab "Tools" and your on your own!

Swapfile:
Rightclick "This Computer", Chose "Preferences"
"Advanced" Tab at the right.
And press the button in "Performance"
You should find it then

DMA:
Rightclick "This Computer", Chose "Preferences"
"Hardware" Tab.
The buton in the midle field "Unitmanager"
(i have the Swedish W2KPro and i can't remeber the exact english word)
Find the IDE ATAPI controllers and you will find the option somwhere there

DX7a is Win9X specifik as it fix input controller IE Force feedback problems!
And those errors are not present in W2KPro!

I am on purpose a litle vauge aboute the exact lokations because its more challanging that way! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif
