Besides Win98 is one of the worst OS there are. You will find so many more bugs in it than XP.

o It's Not

I recommend not upgrading. If you feel you must go only as far as Windows 2K. If you have no option and must purchase XP, downgrade it as soon as possible. Go to Windows 2K instead.

Why? :confused: :D

If your hardware is newish (less than a year old) and you can find all the correct signed drivers for XP then your system is going to be more stable than 98 and more secure if you chose the NTFS file system.

I'd stick to 98 in all other circumstances.

This is even more important for companies with mixed computer systems as even some well known hardware/printer manufactures "still" have not released signed drivers for their products.

Upgrading from 98 is best undertaken online, using the tools supplied by microsoft as the download appears much smaller.

I like windows 2000 and I like windows xp, and the only reason why I used windows xp is the fact that I can burn CD's faster and it loads up faster than in 2k. But both are good if not better operating systems. If you dont want to shell out the dough get windows 2k. :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
