Have just bought a copy of Win98SE..

from ebay.

The problem is the disk says "For Distribution with a new PC only."

What are the legal ramifications of installing this on my computer.?

Many thanks.

if it has been sold by someone with a right to sell it. oem's often buy more copies than they actually need and sell them to get a bit of capital back.

Don't worry too much - MS won't know you have it and, in any case, is withdrawing official support in six months' time.

But you will need to spend a few hours downloading all the security updates, patches etc including that for the Win98SE shutdown problem.

If you read the ReadMe.txt file after installing you will be able to find out what you require and which drivers you may have to update.
