win 98 oem

By nathandrama ·
sorry for the doubling but my last post had a stupid title...

and thanx to fat chink for the help so far.....

i'm a life long mac (and sometimes linux on ppc) user who got an old windows box..(compaq 5330/windows9..

basically it was a mess and i had to use the compaq restore disks that came with the machine to reformat everything...i never thought of the fact that i would need the product key...and came here and found tips on where to find it but i guess because i wiped the hard drive clean before that it was long gone...but...i somehow got around it and managed to actually start it up and now it's working better than ever....i have firefox and an msn messenger client and winamp and a bunch of other stuff running and its all good...but the oem reset reminder is still sitting in the corner of the screen and i'm scared to restart it

my question is

am i in the clear now or do i still have to find a product key??

what should i do?

if i resart the machine do i have to do everything over again?

any help would be appreciated
