Gary: Win98 had two patches preceeding SE. If you put in both you are running ICM color management exactly as it is done in SE. In otherwords, all changes to color management appeared in Win98 (first edition) patches. If you are running unpatched Win98, first ed.) then color management is different. The only difference between patched first edition and SE is the home networking capabilities and a few other NON-color management system items. J.
