Why don't you download a virtual machining client such as vmware player (costly) or Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 (free) or virtualbox (open source)

and install additions so you can do file sharing and all...

This is tricky as win98 is not supported and can not work on faster processors, The book says 2 gig but I had a problem on 1.8 ghz.

the next problem is win98 does not rceognize ntfs file systems. so a bootable partion manager (like linux GParted) would have to be run, to shrink the ntfs partition without altering content to allow another partition to be created then formatted into FAT32 so you could load 98 from a bootable cd.

Hi John
Do a "Restore"
It will restore your computer to an earlier time when you had "My Documents"
It is easy to do, but keep in mind that you will lose that Windows 98 program you installed.

1.Turn on computer
2. Left click "Start"
3. Left click on "All Programs"
4. Left click on "Accessiories"
5. Left click on "System Tools"
6. Left click on "Restore"
Then follow the instructions on the screen and your computer will be taken back to a date of your choosing when it was working good.

Just buy a xp pro cd if you haven't one already and git er done..

When pc first starts, press the F2 key to open the pc cmos settings. Look around and find the boot list and ensure that the machine will boot on cd before hdd. Than boot on your OS cd and attempt to repair existing. This will at worse case reinstall your system.

How to install os


This is a little difficult but it can B done :) Firstly I dunno if ya need to re-format ya drive? perhaps first ya could try to "Repair" of Win98? If that doesn't work,then, perhaps ya may have to re-format. If the Win98 is on a SEPARATE drive or Partition this also makes a difference.... Basically ... repair/re-install win98, then do a repair of ya Boot menu for XP, as Win98 sets up an incorrect Boot up for XP, and thus must be "Fixed" so XP will boot & show a Dual boot menu.. here are some links to help you step by step... http://pcworld.about.com/magazine/2109p156id111652.htm http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/ew/2004/08/30/stories/2004083000250400.htm
