as always the newest one is the best one. Keep in mind some of your problems could be fixed from pointing your browser to
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
but, if you install version 2 you will have better scalability and newer toys to play with ( and much better display drivers )

Make sure that the cd you have is an Upgrade CD and not an OEM clean installation CD. Problems that may arise are solely due to Win98 and not your fault.

Other than that things should be ok. The only major problem should be a few blue screens, but hey, we are used to them by now.

Regards,

Nicholas.

Do'nt do it. Ver1 and 2 have many differences. Either use upgrade or do the system file checker,(start,programs,accessories,system tools,system info: tools , file checker:win98 folder or cd would be handy)then www.windowsupdate.microsoft.com . Get all critical and reccomended. Even if you upgrade to 98se you should get the updates for smother operation
