I need to replace my CD/DVD rom drive in my Windows 98 Operating System computer. I have a Pentium II processor, 64 MB Ram. I have seen some of these drives, but mostly they seem to be for Windows 98SE and up. Don't know what to purchase that will be suitable for my computer. I ordered one from Gateway, but when I received it, the system requirements were for a Pentium III processor and 128 MB Ram plus the windows 98SE and up. They tell me it will work, but I have my doubts and haven't attempted to install it. Can anyone advise? Thanks.

If you can get it out of the box without breaking any seals then go ahead and connect it.

If you have to break seals to open the box, get it in writing from them that the drive is suitable for your system, they are aware of the specs, and that you will be able to return it if it does not run
