Your upgrade options
If you want to upgrade your system to Windows XP, the first thing you need to do is verify that it meets the system requirements for the newer operating system.
You will need:
Windows 98 or later version of Microsoft Windows operating system.
At least a 233Mhz processor. Any manufacturer (AMD, Intel, IBM, VIA, etc.) will do.
At least 128MB of system memory.
1.5 Gigabytes of free hard drive space (note that you should have at least 3 gigabytes if you want to do any meaningful work with your system after the upgrade).
A CD-Rom or CD/RW drive.
Mouse and keyboard (either USB or PS/2).
A video adaptor and monitor capable of displaying 800x600 resolution. If you are not sure about this, change the resolution within Windows 98 by right clicking on an empty area of the desktop and selecting 'properties' then going to the 'settings' tab. The resolution slider is at the bottom left. Set it to '800x600' and click 'apply.' If your screen is still legible, you are fine. If the 800x600 option is unavailable, you may need to upgrade your video adaptor before upgrading Windows.
Note that if the screen becomes scrambled, blank or unreadable, you will probably need a new monitor as your current one cannot handle the required resolution. If your system meets the minimum requirements for Windows XP, it's time to find out which version of the operating system you can upgrade to.

Because, Linux is upgrade & so power_full operating system. U already have Win98 & WinXP. If install Linux, previous window not work in same computer, because she (Linux) is ONE. Means, she operate whole computer or system, no more windows chance anytime. Maybe, u install 98 & XP running window time.
Install first the Win98 OS to your Drive C: and then Install the WinXP to your drive D:
after you restart the system it will prompt you to boot either on Win98 or XP. You can also do this in one hdd only. all you have to do is to repartition the hdd
yes you can install winxp if you have winxp bootable disk. Boot your computer with winxp disk. For that insert winxp disk into cd or dvd rom then when you power up press F8 or F5 or F12 to get first boot option then set first boot as your cd or dvd rom then you can boot computer with disk.
if you know the installation of winxp and win98 then it is possible to create a system with mercury board with 98 and xp.
firstly you install win xp in your computer. it's automatically located in c drive. then you intall win 98 custom install and then choose the installation directory of another drive like d. you use any boot manager to boot the pc with win98 and winxp. i don't tell you the installation process step by step. so don't mind.
hi when u upgrade memory did u install same bus speed ram if not change them or check removing one by one ram from the slots. if not working than may be your os cruppted or bad caps on the motherboard. check tham all may be it help you
hi wtm78 this is nichu,
it is impossible to install win 98 after installing xp,if you want to install win98 you must remove the winxp and then first install win98 and later you can install winxp,
basically it is impossible to install a lower order software when xp is already installed,in your case it is the same
there will be no things like dual boot or anything ,after booting your system asks whether you want to work with win98 or winxp.
for any new hard disk first you have to create a partition table. Usually this is done when installing the OS. eg: for win98 you have to first create the partition in dos, format it, then run win98 setup. Now in WinXP this can be done when installing the OS. Similarly you may have to create the partition before runing UNIX setup. I Dont know the installation for UNIX. Usually the hard disk manufacturer supplies with some utility to do the partition. Like Disk Manager from Seagate.
