I have a system set up for dual boot ( win 98SE AND W2K).I can not access the internet in win 98 with Internet Explorer or Netscape, but I can access it through w2k. Any ideas about a solution?

I assume that you are using a standard modem and a dial up ISP.

Make sure that your modem works in W98.
Go to control panel / modems and click on the diagnostics tab, select your modem, and click the more info button.
If you get any errors, thedriver is not properly installed.

Next, check your network settings.
For most ISPs, you need
TCP/IP
DUN (Dial-Up-Networking)
And Client for Microsoft Networks.
Install additional services and protocals as required by your ISP.

Then, makesure that the TCP/IP and DUN settings are correct for your ISP, and that you have setup the dial-up connection properly.

Hello,

you do know that you have to setup your ISP details in Win98 as well, as if it were a different computer?

Start with the simple and work your way up :-)

Have you tried ping or tracert, if you can do either of those and you get a answer, then you may have a winsock problem with your browser. you can upgrade to winsock 2.0 at microsofts website.

Please provide some more details on what you have tried, and the results.

Also, are the 2 OSs on totally seperate partitions?
If not, W2K may have written over some W98 files and that is what is at the root of the problem.

For a dual boot setup to work properly, each OS needs to have it's own partition and program installations.
