try installing driver updating software like unibule driver scanner it solved my all issues regarding unknown drivers or else u can install windows 7 as it has also installed most of my drivers itself without making me use the drivers setup.
You can insert the Windows XP CD while logged on Win 98 and run a test from the CD. Obviously you need a larger Hard Disk and at least 126 MB RAM to bring XP to a usable speed. You can look for RAM upgrade options in this page.
I suppose the upgrade was a success. Then go to the boot sequence on the bios and set it to the cd rom. but make sure that the cdrom is working fine, meaning try to install it on a differn computer and see if you can play audio cd on it to see if its working or not.
If you cannot see the speaker icon in the taskbar, click on Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and tick place icon in the taskbar. That's if a driver has been installed for your sound device which is a creative sounblaster I think.
Take the battery out for a minute and put it back in. Don't plug the AC adapter in. Now turn it on. If it comes on go to 'settings' 'control panel' 'power settings' set everything to 'never' and make sure nothing is checked under the differant tabs.
