    Just out of interest what is the longest anyone has had either win 98/SE/ME running without a reboot?. I'll start with about 9 months and another one must be about 2 years, can anyone beat that.

    The machine in question is used to display train times, and every morning its still running without a reboot as far as I know ( I suppose i could double check); but it's in an out of the way place which means its a pain if it does go wrong. When it was first installed we had to go to reboot it @ least 2 times a day.

    Damn, and i just finished downloading SP2 as well. Any idea why the official drivers for Win2k Voodoo 3 disable hibernation whilst the drivers that come with Win2k allow it?
