Alright I am trying to install XAMPP on a Windows 98SE laptop, for testing purposes. I can't remember the exact error, but Apache can't start it has ot do with the line in the http.conf file where you specify the port it uses. It says it can't attach, or something or other like that. Can anyone help?

This laptop have a network connection?
You have installed the Winsock2 Update for Win98?

IMHO you have a problem with the TCP/IP driver for the networkcard. Try to reinstall the network drivers.

No it is not connected to a network. It does have a dial up modem, but it is not used. The Win sock 2 Update is only needed for Windows 95 according to everything I have seen. Including Microsoft's website.

That's a problem. You need a working network interface and valid ip for this interface if you want to start a server.

You should install the virtual loopback interface.

And I get that where?

It's part of your Windows:
Network properties --> Add network interface --> vendor Microsoft ...

Sorry, I have no Windows 98 at the moment.

So you mean like this, except i do it in Windows 98?

Nope doesn't work. The only drivers show when I go there are the following:

Dial-Up Adapter
Microsoft PPP over ATM Adapter
Microsoft Virtual Private Networking Adapter

The loopback adapter is available for every Windows. Please look in your system documentation or ask microsoft (eg. knowledge base or newsgroup) to find it.
