Default Can you install Rockbox with Win98se?

I just drag and drop music onto my e280 in msc mode with win98, and was wondering if I can still try Rockbox without having WinXP and the Sansaupdater thing?

Cheers

Sansaupdater isn't related to rockbox, so you don't need that. I doubt rbutil will run on Windows 98 so you can't use the automated installation instructions, but the manual instructions might work. Worth a shot anyway.

If that fails, just download a Linux live CD and use the automatic installer from there.

Thanks saratoga, I remembered wrong - it wasn't Sansa updater it was this that I read on Rockbox site:
Bootloader installation from Windows


1. Download sansapatcher.exe from http://download.rockbox.org/bootload...nsapatcher.exe and run it whilst logged in with an administrator account.

So it is rbutil that I will be trying to get installed on the player?

I was referring to the instructions in the manual. Take a look at those, keeping in mind the "automatic" install option won't work on 98.
