Well, there is a solution, but it depends how comfortable you are with computers. I assume you have a driver to use it under windows 98, and I'm hoping it's a cd burner, and that you have XP install disk.

You would need to use a program called nLite or another similar one, but this is the only one I've personally used. Just googled for it and you'll find instuctions on their site. You will be using that program to copy your XP install CD to your harddrive, integrating the needed drivers with it, and then burning a new bootable XP install CD that includes the needed drivers.

    I apologize, I guess I assumed the driver issue was when you were installing XP. What is the brand and model number of both the usb to sata connecter and the drive you are connecting to it?

How do i erase windows 95 and replace it with windows 98?


you get a copy of windows 98, pop in the disc, click upgrade (or fresh install if you don't wanna keep anything), and let her install. About 45 minutes after it reboots you should check on it because it has a dialog box for you then.

How do i build a local area network in windows xp?


On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable. If not feel free to email me at smichael@phoenixschool.net and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!

You need the windows 98 se installation cd and product key.

Microsoft no longer supports or makes these so your going to have to find one used, from ebay for example:
