Good day,
I want to install Win ME on this machine for a friend of mine
and found, I think, all the drivers I need (inf, sound, video).
The last thing is the 15.4 " WXGA screen which I cannot find any driver
for and which I don't know if it will be supported by ME or not.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Nevermind. Just checked. Why on Earth would any sane person take off XP and
install Millenium, the very worst Win 9X version?

I'd be downright shocked if any one bothered to write 9x/Me drivers for it.

It's an XP World!

What I know is that she has a licence for ME that she likes
and wants to install it on this machine.
Might seem strange but I know a few people who like ME
and have it on fairly recent machines...personally I have Win98SE
and do not want anything else.
This notebook came with XP but she does not like it at all (can't blame her
for that) and wants to get rid of it.

It's not yet a Big brother world, thank u ?
Just found the drivers I needed for this machine
for Win98/ME.
Never be an XP world for me and so many others,
no way.
Might turn out to be a Linux world.
Hey, that's what IBM is going to deliver his machines with ;-)

Glad you found them. I'd suggest, though, before you dismiss XP, you just
choose the option to make it 'look' like ME, rather than the new snazzy
interface.

It is SO much more stable.

Exactly! Configure the OS the machine was designed to run on to her liking.
You may find 98/ME drivers that will "work" but you're turning down a dead
end street. Much better to avoid that dead end now than to have to back out
of it later. There's always a learning period for users when you put a new
OS in front of them. Find out what she doesn't like and maybe we can help
you with the issues. Usually it's just cosmetics. Ask her in a month or two
if she still wants to go back to the old way and she'll probably smack you
hehe..
