  Windows 9.x System Resources - HelpWithWindows.com
These problems are somewhat less severe than they used to be because Windows 9.x manages system resources more intelligently than 3.x But it is still a very common cause of memory error messages and program crashes.
Windows 98 uses an asynchronous input model for all input to the system and applications.
Windows 9.x incorporates the Windows 64KB system-resource limit for better performance when it is providing backward compatibility.

 Sysinternals Freeware - NTFS for Windows 98   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
NTFS for Windows 98 wraps the Windows NT/2000/XP NTFS driver in a run-time environment that simulates the Windows NT environment the NTFS driver is written to use.
Because the Windows 95/98 environment is different than that of Windows NT/2000/XP, the level of NTFS support that NTFS for Windows 98 provides is not equivalent to that provided on Windows NT/2000/XP.
Do not convert your first partition, or your Windows 95/98 boot partition (the one with \windows on it), to NTFS as there is no support in Windows 95 or Windows 98 for reading NTFS drives during the boot sequence.

 Leave Windows 9x behind - ZDNet UK Insight   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The root cause for all this instability is the fact that the Windows 9x operating system kernel is basically a cobbled together version of the prehistoric DOS operating system kernel.
Basically this means that Windows 9x is so busy with its juggling act that a tiny failure at any point can bring the whole operating system tumbling down.
Windows XP and its predecessor, Windows 2000, on the other hand, are built on the NT kernel, which provides a much more stable operating system core.

 Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows: Upgrading to Windows XP from Windows 9x/Me
Windows 9x/Me and XP may look similar, but they're built on two completely different technology platforms, and it's actually sort of amazing that an upgrade between them can take place at all.
Windows 9x/Me is based on DOS, a 16-bit command line OS that debuted in 1983.
It is the technological successor to Windows 2000, not Windows 9x/Me.

Be aware - Profiles created under NT, even with the Windows 9x version of the policy editor will not be read correctly from a Windows 9x machine so the config.pol file needed for Windows 9x machines should be created under a Windows 9x machine and then copied to the netlogon share of the domain controller.
Installing under NT is only useful for experimenting and it will not be able to load profiles created by a Windows 9x machine.

A common topic of confusion amongst Windows 9x users is the difference between resources and memory.
