I have been reading the material on LyX136 and I've got a concern over

It seems puzzling when MiKTeX and some of the other required software do
give the impression that they get along with Win98 just fine.
Any thoughts or opinions??
For several years I have been using LyX ~1.3.4 on a Windows 98 (Second
Edition) laptop with 32MB of RAM and a 400mhz AMD processor. Neither LyX
nor MikTeX have ever given me a hard time. Compilation time was decent and
LyX was rather stable and responsive.
If you experience trouble with installation of version 1.3.6, I suggest
you fall back to older versions. It is more or less guaranteed to work. I
should point out that I was using the unsupported Windows port of LyX (was
the author's name Klaus?). I installed it on other Windows machines and
all was successful.
Hope it helps,
