    Hey, i just installed windows xp on a computer already running windows 98. now at startup i have the choice of which system to run. Does having two o/s slow down or waste space on my computer? and if so, how do i remove win 98 from the computer?

    1. Yes, it's a waste of space. You don't need Windows 98 if you have XP.

    2. You will have to reformat, BUT you will lose everything and start on a clean slate. That means all your porn, games, pirated games, documents, software. So, I would recommend to try and back it all up on a disk.
