South Carolina Edition of Windows 98


Dear Consumers:

     It has come to our attention that a few copies of the
WINDOWS 98 SOUTH CAROLINA EDITION may have accidentally been
shipped outside SOUTH CAROLINA.  If you have one of these, you
may need some help understanding the commands.  

     The SOUTH CAROLINA edition may be recognized by the unique
   opening screen.  
   ------------------------------------------------------------
   It reads WINDERS  98  with a background picture of General
   Robert E. Lee superimposed on a Confederate flag.  It is
   shipped with a Dukes of Hazzard screen saver.

   Also note:  The Recycle Bin is labeled "Outhouse"
   My Computer is called "This Dern Contraption"
   Dial up Networking is called "Good Ol' Boys"
   Control Panel is known as the "The Dashboard"

   Instead of an error message a "garbage bag and roll of duct
   tape" pops up
