[kepler-dev] [kepler-users] installation issues

    I created the Alpha8 Kepler installer and I must admit to never 
testing against Windows 98 (at least partially since we don't have any 
hardware still using that OS.)  Frankly, I am not surprised that it 
would not run under Win 98. I would suggest that you try another newer 
OS. Sorry!
    If there are other people out there who run on Win 98, let us know. 
If we get enough requests, we canlook into getting Kepler working on Win 98.
