Everyone's ignorant till they get their feet wet.
What you gotta do is download the files for RTV patch using the linux boot disk. Following the instructions you will create a boot diskette for linux (under your version of windows) with that version of the RTV patch on it. After creating the boot diskette, turning off your PC and attaching the replay drive/drives to your PC (just follow the instructions) you'll boot up using the diskette (now booting linux not windows) and off you go.
The only down side to this method is that you cannot utilize large clusters (better if you have lots of storage) on the hard disk. To format the drive with large clusters you gotta use the windows version of RTVPatch and that requires windows 2000/xp not windows 98/me. I'm hoping someone will put up a version of the linux patch that will support large clusters but it ain't there yet.
Now you got the idea; read the FAQ see if it makes sense; download the files make the diskette, boot it, anymore questions - askem.
