    I'm pretty sure napster is back with a pay-per-download system. I haven't tried it but you may want to check www.napster.com

    www.iTunes.com

    by far the biggest, and most popular service, the others are all slowly failing.

    thanks for the replies....I guess I'll give Napster a shot. I would have tried itunes but they don't support W98.

    Thanks,

    good thing i don't need a IT guy in my house ;)
    but I do think it's about time to move to XP. I think Microsoft has finally woked out all the problems (just recently).
    I've stuck with W98 for so long because I just never have any problems. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Everyone I know who has XP just complained about it....ok well not everyone.

    BTW isn't it the IT's guy job to upgrade the network ;)

  12. I've been using "Rhapsody" for maybe six months now and have been quite satisified. I can't say how it compares to the others mentioned, though, as I've never used them. I'm always looking for something new, so I may check them out myself, but Rhapsody is another option.

    Oh yeah! I filled out a check right before that post, and I dated it 2003. Woops!

    Plus, I am studying the MS Server 2003 stuff right now, so I am already a year behind!

    What did I miss?

    Win98 pfff

    Spend the money on windows XP home edition.

    I have the pro and its awesome.

    As far as which service, iTunes is the best.

    I here ya guys. I just went to MS's website and did a check to make sure I won't have too many conflits with XP pro. Looks good. I'm probably going to pick up the upgrade version this week.

    Thanks for the help with the sites.
