Want the proper "soul" experience? Get a period-accurate hard drive. If you're setting up a Windows 98 machine for nostalgia stuff, be sure to get something around 8-20 GB.
I remade close to my family's old Pentium 2, and grabbed the original 10 GB Maxtor drive it came with, and holy hell was it S-L-O-W. Installing Windows 98 was just as I remembered from childhood: an all-afternoon experience. Booting to the desktop was time to go get a coffee. Even just quitting a game you'd played a while was a chore as it redrew the desktop a few pixel rows at a time while paging things back in from disk.
Even just giving it a 250 GB mechanical hard disk made it way more bearable, but with a $30 SSD and a SATA/IDE adapter it's insane how fast it can start up and launch things.

because they are not cool and are lame
>>
>>84462078
How're they lame? It does the same but without horrible seek times.
>>
>>84462125
define "horrible seek time"

its lame because it is not epic like spinning magical magnets encased in gas
>>
>>84461812
ok boomer

>>84462144
>spinning magical magnets
It's just paint with iron powder poured over a platter while it's spinning to get a reasonably even coat.
>encased in gas
Same gas you're breathing. That little hole on top of the drive that says not to cover it leads to the inside of the drive, with just a paper filter and a baffle to prevent debris getting in. In reality, a few tiny motes of dust inside the drive are no big deal. The air current made by the platters blows them away, until they eventually get caught in a separate paper filter put there to caught any stray particles. Heck, spinning the platters releases a small amount of nano metal dust over time, but it's no big deal because it gets caught in the filter.
