    you cant 'upgrade' windows as such, you would have to format the computer and take win98 off, then you could put XP on.

    Anytime that you update an OS, or reinstall an OS, reformatting the OS partition is the BEST way to do it.

    to format your hd for win98, use the win98 bootdisk that you can make in the add/remove/bootdisk section in control panel
