Hi!

Need help. I have a Dell Latitude 366XT laptop. It came with no operating system so I downloaded Windows 98SE. INstalled the audio and video drivers and installed a LInksys WPC 11 Wireless notebook adapter. It was working fine. I would click on Internet Explorer and I would go to www.msn.com. I wanted to see if I can download XP on the laptop. Attempted to do so and there was not enough memory. So I reformatted the hard drive and reloaded Windows 98SE. I then reinstalled the wireless adapter so I can get on the internet to download my drivers again. When i click on Internet Explorer instead of going to the internet it wants me to Setup MSN Internet access. I checked the configuration utility and it says that I have a connection but obviously something is missing.

Hope you can help.
