    Most tweaks can be done through the Registry. Go to this site and search for the kinds of tweaks that you want. Your results will specify what operating systems the tweak will work for, and there will be tweaks for Win98.

    900mhz is fine for XP, (500mhz the min recomended) just upgrade her Ram too at least 256mb (preferably 512mb)
