    A friend of mine has asked for help in securing his pc which has windows 98 on it and uses dial up for internet. Does the free Zone Alarm FW support win98? If not, do you know of any other good free firewall that does?

    Yep, Zone Alarm will work fine. I use it myself with Win 98.

    Thanks guys,

    After some looking around on zone alarms web site I found the system requirements. They said the latest version will work on 98SE. So I downloaded that, burned it on a cd and took it to my friend to install. It seems to be working fine.
