I have now tried 5 times to upgrade from '98SE' and although everything seems to well with no reported errors, I do not have a taskbar, start-button or icons on the desktop.
Any help here would be appreciated.

Upgrading...sucks...I've learned that MS and "upgrading" don't mix, I'd recommend a clean install sorry man

As I recall, XP does a good job of grabbing all your old settings during an upgrade. Here's a wild guess: I don't remember if SE could do this but did you somehow hide your task bar, etc in SE?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
