[08-12-2000] chris.carson : Hi i am relativley new to computers but i want to become competent in using windows 98 and it's smaller programs so i can use the computer quickly and quietly what are the best resources, i don't wish to become an expert and make a job out of it, just to be able to whatever i need.

Glad you want to learn more about your computer!

Click on this link:

This page will help you take the Windows98 Tour program (it's a program that teaches you the basics on using Win98. It should come with your computer and already be installed)

Let me know if that does the trick! If not, let me try and find more things to help you get jump-started on Win98.
[08-14-2000] chris.carson : Hi thanks for your help. Do you think learning dos
would be helpful and if so which books or materials do you think would be most benificial.
[08-14-2000] saintly :
No. I don't think it is necessary for most computer users to learn DOS at this point. Consider it like an "advanced" skill - if you know it, you can make scripts and tweak your system performance and (eventually, with enough skill) diagnose and fix difficult problems.

It is good to learn for technicians who will be needing it to work on older computers, and for hacker-type people who want to make their system run more efficiently. I would recommend very strongly that you master Windows 98 first and get extremely familiar with it before you move on to DOS.
