XP - more stable [few crashes], more user friendly, more than likely on your new PC.

But if you have some hardware (printers, scanners etc) that you want to keep, you may have difficulties finding the correct drivers to make them work with XP.

Win 98 was good in its day, but tended to be unstable. Win XP is far better and a lot more stable.
