Windows 98 Faster Startup
If you are like me you want your PC to boot and shutdown as fast as possible so you do not waste time waiting for your PC. Here is a tip to shave a few seconds of the Windows 98 boot time.

You can tell Windows 98 not to search for your floppy drive when your PC is booted up. You will still be able to use the floppy drive as normal and Windows 98 will search for it only when you click on its icon in Explorer.

To switch this feature off Right-click on My Computer and choose Properties then select the Performance tab. Click on the File System button, then on the Floppy Disk tab. Deselect the option to "Search for new floppy disk drives each time your computer starts."
