    quick question

    is it possible to install and run a dvd-burner
    on windows 98, specifically the pioneer 106

    make sure he'll be able to use it if he gets it

    use for burning dvd's
    he's using a p2 400MHz, with 192MB RAM i think

    I believe a cpu of 400 MHz is too slow for any sort of DVD burner. The amount of data throughput required to burn a DVD may be too much for such a slow system. From what I can find it's suggested to have at least 800 MHz and 1.6 GHZ suggested.

    IDE controller with available connector
    10GB OR MORE free hard drive space

    DVD video disc creation requirements:
    Intel 800 MHz Pentium III minimum or equivalent (1 GHz or better recommended)
