Of course. Windows XP is compatible with products, especially Microsoft products, made for previous operating systems. Frontpage doesn't really require much so you can install that with XP.

You are may need to use compatibility mode for this program. It was originally intended for use on windows 98/Me/2000 and XP. To set compatibility mode to any of those operating systems, right click on the American Greeting shortcut (the icon you click to start the program) and select "properties". Now look for the "Compatibility" tab and click on the check box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and in the drop down box, select "Windows XP (Service pack 2)" Or, "windows XP (Service pack 3). If there is no service pack options for windows xp, that's fine. After you made your selection, press ok. If the program works, you're set. If not, go back and change the compatibility mode operating system to another choice such as "Windows 98" or "Windows 2000". Try each one and see what works for you.

I have several older pieces of software that I would like to use. However I need to dumb down my laptop from window XP to windows 98 Is there a cheap/free way to this?

most windows 98 software can be ran in XP using "compatibility mode", but you might have to adjust other compatibility settings to get it to work. i have never had problems running windows 98 software in xp, or even vista, even without compatibility mode, so your actual hardware may be to blame.

to access compatibility mode, right click on the program's .exe file or desktop shortcut and choose "properties" and then select the "compatibility" tab. there you will find options to run in windows 98 mode, and several video options. you may have to try several different video configurations along with windows 98 mode before you find the one that works.

if the compatibility options dont fix it, then the processor is probably too fast for the program, and you will have to download software (if available for your motherboard/model) to underclock, or slow down, your processor. to find the right software to do this will take quite a bit of research, and may be beyond your skill level.

there is also a free program called microsoft virtual pc that can run other versions of windows in a "virtual computer" inside your windows xp desktop. you can download virtual pc from the microsoft website, and i believe that it comes with, or has available for free, a windows 98 virtual os. if it does not make the windows 98 virtual software available for free, then you will, unfortunately, have to purchase a windows 98 cd on ebay.

to actually wipe xp and replace it with windows 98 may not be feasible because the windows drivers might not be available for your computer, and the proper drivers are necessary to access all of your hardware. there is no support for windows 98 anymore, so the drivers are quite hard to find, if they were even ever made.

My game is loaded but when i click on the icon. it will not play?

Ok, from what I read on Microsoft, this software is NOT compatible with Windows Vista 32-bit or 64-bit. That was found directly from:

However, checking the company's website, it mentions that some games that normally won't run in Windows Vista, can be ran in a "compatibility mode" which mimics Windows XP. Follow these steps and see if this corrects the problem:
  1. Right-click the shortcut for the game.
  2. Click the compatibility tab.
  3. Check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode".
  4. Select Windows XP SP2 (or Windows 98 if XP does not work) from the drop down menu.
  5. Click Apply
  6. Click OK
  7. Start the game
It should run in Windows XP SP2. If it doesn't you can try Windows 98 to be sure. If neither of these work, unfortunately, you may be unable to play this game.

Problem with my video card and sound card

No, that card is not compatible with Windows 98 or Windows 98 SE (Second Edition). It is only compatible with Windows 2000/XP/XPx64/MCE.

Compatibility meaning there are no drivers available for Windows 98/98SE.
