If yours is a job where time is valuable and every second counts, then waiting for Windows 98 to boot must seem like an eternity. Fortunately, you can trim a few seconds off the boot process by configuring the file system to bypass the floppy disk check on start up. To do this, right-click on My Computer and select Properties from the shortcut menu. Next, select the Performance tab and then click the File System button. When the File System Properties dialog box appears, select the Floppy Disk tab and deselect the Search For New Floppy Disk Drives Each Time Your Computer Starts check box. Click OK to close the File System Properties dialog box and then click OK once more to close the System Properties dialog box. Restart your computer to see the difference.
