What do you recommend to get the default PA28, MD83 and

Recommended Posts

Dash 8 visible in my Select Aircraft window? I feel a bit silly, having been here since 2K2 was released and never really noticed they wern't showing up. All those lovely third party aircraft to try I suppose. The Panel folders are mssing aren't they, so which panels do you recommend? Running the Pro edition.I have just done a hard disk reformat, a minimal instal of Win98SE (no Internet Explorer or Outlook Express etc)and nothing else on C: but essential drivers and 2K2. It runs so much better, loads quickly and I seem to get 15/25 fps on my Voodoo 5/Athlon 1.3 with all settings maxed (no fsaa). I'm keeping the addons to the bare minimum too.Go on reformat = you know it makes sense.Thanks for the help with my question.PH

Thank you very much wsieffert.I use Activesky for weather, and am a member of VATSIM. I use Opera for Internet. I guess I'll go with XP for the next upgrade, but have always been keen on the Win98Lite concept - which knocks IE browser integration out of the Windows shell. http://www.litepc.com/index.htmlLoad Windows without "address books" and you kill Outlook express - my OS was some 238mb. It's a bit of an obsession I suppose.Thanks for the info on the .air file - news to me, and the zips.Best regards,PH

Looks like you got the bases covered! I only went with WinXP when I built a totally new computer. I actually have it dual bootable with Win98SE/WinXP. WinXP SP1 provided some court ordered options of eliminating some MS items, albeit they are still on the harddrive, as primary or mandatory.I did a minimum install on an old computer with minimum disk space and speed. Funny however, it wasn't compact enough to keep up with the stuff I wanted to put on it over my LAN, such as NAV3.1, etc.
