I can't imagine why it wouldn't work. I have Windows 98 SE here
somewhere. I also have Windows Me. I may install them on a VM and do
Windows 98 SE and Me are variously broken. MS backported a bunch of NT
technology to both systems. So, it wouldn't surprise me that some of
the POSIX-like stuff quit working. No one would ever notice, anyway.

Well, unless some kind soul tests it or donates a copy we may never
know. ;-) I'd suspect it should work just like Windows 2000, though.

Good idea. There's no way anything on Win 9x can be considered
"secure". Even worse on NT/2000/XP. IIS runs, in kernel space, under
the System account. Which essentially grants it more priveleges than
even the Administrator at a local console.

Windows is a fun, exciting and quite unpredictable hobby. Some poor
souls also deem it as a career. I see it more as something to look
through and wash occasionally.
