You can using software that special to configure and personalize Windows 98/98SE/95
eg. WinBoost 2000, Tweak UI etc

If you can't find those, try Hook99, a small freeware program that will change the text and icon on the start button. Just configure it and throw it in your startup folder;

Hi,

Some third-party softwares can do this however you can also do it by yourself.
1. Restart computer, press F8 and select boot as "command prompt only".
2. From prompt, run debug.exe with parameter is Win.com. (debug win.com). Notes that fullpath is required.
Search for "Start" (s "Start"), when you find it, replace it with what you want with (e address_of_"start" new_value)

Good luck,

Duong beo
P/S: Before making any changes, be sure you have a backup of file Win.com.

As well as the other suggestions look on www.simtel.net for eppiedesktop. This is what we use.

Searh your .ICO file for the start button icon and open it in either Paint or any other paint program and there you can alter the look of it then just save it.

Cheers Strider
