Can't quite remember. I have a distant memory of that too. (Not that we ever used it on the hundreds of GX1's I installed for AK uni.)

Looks like B or C so will be FAT32 compatible. It'll install on any machine from any brand as long as the system is within Windows 95 specs. Same goes for similar looking Windows 98/98SE as well as NT4 and W2k oems That Dell sticker is easy enough to remove as well with the help of an iron. Carefully using baby wipes will usually take the remaining glue off but you'll usually damage the covers print and surface where the sticker is located.

You'll more than likely have to go driver hunting though, which is usually par for the course with a lot of Win9x installs.

Looks like the buyer knew that and got it at a good price.
