Makes me think of my bios setup: there is an option where you select which
OS you're using ("mostly"), with the options Win95, Win98 or Other... any
idea what that might do? I cannot remember what it is currently on. Other
thing, I read somewhere a recommendation to turn off (video bios?)
shadowing, or something like that. I did that on my previous computer, but
this laptop doesn't have an option like that, and it definately shadows
something (actually two things, I think). What impact does this "shadow"
stuff have?

I must say, I wish I had the source code to my bios, 'cause at this point
I cannot even disable booting from disk! (It is always possible to press
escape, and get a boot menu with "Disk, Hard Disk, or CDROM"...)
