There is an older version of Fraps available for Windows 98, but it isn't that great compared to the 2000/XP version. You could try using Windows Media Encoder but from my experience, it slows down the computer too much to be useful, although I suppose running Chankast and recording would probably be more stressful than recording a PC game. Regardless of what method you use, it will most likely require a LOT of power to pull off well. When I did the HL2: Lost Coast video on my Athlon XP machine using Fraps, my framerate dropped into the single digits the whole time. You'll definitely get the best performance using a dual core processor, or a P4 with HT, not to mention a fast hard drive.

While we're on the topic of FRAPS, is there a way to drop the file size without significantly losing quality? All my attempts have been utterly futile.

nope, not even. putting it to raw AVI sucks too. the only true way to do it is have it take a bmp screenshot for each frame rendered. that's how we do it for CS movies, HUUUGE files when you're doing 90 fps and there is a bmp for each frame.

I wonder how the hard drive could even keep up with that oO. Is the person recording it using some kind of server with a nice hard drive setup?
gigabit fiber to a san server farm :p
