i have just done the same and running win 98 se no probs just check your memory is compatable when i installed it the cpu was reading 1.3 instead of 1.8 (xp 2200 ) just update memory to 333mhz in your bios if nessasary

I have a 2400 on 98 with 512MB RAM ;-)

So a 2200 should be good to go.

The XP in the Athlon processor model is not solely intended to be used with Windows XP, but to make the most of the OS's abilities; it it backwards compatible with earlier versions of Windows.

I suggest you read the info in this link:

I'll try again..:-)

The XP suffix for the Athlon processor(s) doesn't mean it is intended to be used solely with Windows XP, but to make the most of the OS's abilities; it is backwards compatible with earlier Windows versions.

May I suggest you read the info in this link?

An example of the opposite. My Celeron 400MHz CPU is four years old and I use WindowsXP Pro.

It ensured a firm farewell to the occasional blue screen delivered by Windows 95, 98 and 98SE and a warm welcome to a rock steady environment in which to work...:-)
