The Windows 98 tab describes a generic way of installing Windows 98 SE on a thin client. Note this is about getting through the first stage of getting Windows 98 SE onto your chosen thin client. The next stage - finding and installing any necessary drivers - is then down to you.


My main projects with thin clients has generally been to set them up as a web server. Examples of this are:

  • An outline of how I installed PuppyServer on a Compact Flash based Capio 620.

  • A detailed description on how to install DSL 4.4.9 along with Samba and Apache on the Neoware CA5 using a 2.5" hard drive.

The most up-to-date description of the software can be found on the Tiny Core Linux page.
