I have a Pentium 120 that I am trying to get running on Win 98 just for routing, folding and extra file space. I have 2 1.2 Gig WD drives. After FDisk and Formating and running the win 98 install everthing is going fine until the restart and then it runs into a problem. I get a BSOD with a VFAT error and it says system halted. I installed the OS on both HD's and got the same problem. I even installed the HD as the master on my 2100 box and installed just to run into the same problem. Any ideas or suggestions? The main thing I need this for is as a router before my hub. I have tried running Coyote Linux and Freesco and neither one want to work right plus I'd rather have 98 on it so I can Fold and use ICS for routing.

Couple scratches, but I just re-installed on the 2100 Box about a week ago and it's fine as I am on it now.
