Oh yeah! How much RAM do you have installed? What I was saying about ME being able to use two gigs making it attractive is true, but 98 SE's ability to use DOS drivers and utilities (like HimemX for example) have, in my experience, made it easier to get going on newer systems. I have to admit, though, I'm rooting for you to get ME going, cause I'd like to know what all you have to do. :thumbup:

Well, you may not need to think about this too terribly hard. Mr R. Loew has passed away and his son has expressed his desire to make his father's patches freely available:

I didn't realize that people would find out so soon about my father's passing. I wanted to express my appreciation of the impact he has had for many of you with all his work on Windows. I got to hear about it for years over meals and I never realized how many people found value in his patches.

It is a busy time right now but I did want to clear the air regarding the patches. I would like them to continue to be distributed, for his work to be remembered and to be beneficial to others. So, please, freely distribute what you may have in terms of the work my dad did. When things are more settled, I will see what I can do regarding anything missing he might have had available and whatever relevant material there might be that someone could use to further pursue his work.

My aunt (Rudy's sister) just made me aware of this thread and I appreciate the positive sentiments towards my father made here.

In terms of the patches, please continue to make them available - I want his impact to continue for as long as it can. At some point, I will try to piece together what he had and make it publicly available. It is a difficult time at the moment and figuring out his computers is a challenge.
I'm not going to post the patches here (I'll leave that to the powers-that-be here), but will post a link where you can get a number of them. Also, in the link to vogons forum above, there's a link to a file labeled ' RLOEW Xfile and Slipstream Tools Packages with update.rar' two posts below the one I linked to.

I'm fairly certain there's instructions somewhere on the net (if not in the patch itself) about slipstreaming the memory patch. FYI, the two patches that you're most likely to be interested in for your Windows ME project are Patchmem and Sata.

While I personally disagreed with R Loew sometimes, he was the one who sat down and figured all this stuff out before anyone else. He will be missed by many.

Just found this, perhaps a better place to get Rloew's files:
