When you buy a PC and either run out of space or feel like running your own
network test environment within one machine, you generally need another
hard drive. Your dealer will install an extra, for a fee. Also, believe it
or not, there ARE some people out there who like to work on their PCs; it's
a common hobby. Also, many small businesses need to expand their systems
from time to time but don't necessarilly have the cash to have someone else
install new components.
>2. Everyone should know that Win98 has replaced Win95
> Win98 has plug-in-play features.
Everyone should also know that this plug and play is not 100% there yet.
It's also important to point out that installing an internal hard drive in
a Mac is just as difficult as in a PC.
