I installed windows 98 frankly just to get this working, so i guess
you'd say i'm trying to share an existing Windows install. I posted the
debugger information from the mandrake 9 rpm in an earlier post, hideous
and incomprehensible as it was to me.

That would be fantastic! If you do please let me know how you get on.
This is infuriating. I love my new mandrake 9 install and really want to
use kazaa lite with it now that we've just got an adsl line in. I
hopefully will be able to finish the win98 install this weekend and i'll
let you know if it makes a difference. I have a sneaky suspicion this
problem is related to ie. maybe it didn't get fully installed?
