Ah, the good old days of WIndows 98 computers and things like dial up and AOL. I have a lot of old computers from the 1990s and one at my fathers house that's a mid 90s Dell XPS with  Windows 98.

ya, I installed one on our Gateway P5 60 back in the early 90's and bluescreened the computer to the point where it wouldn't boot up anymore. My parents had to call the local computer guy to come and fix it.
