When I go to controls add/remove items,
"winXP" is not listed. I want to delete XP and re install win98. I am using an home edition of XP
Thanks
Fred

You cannot remove a program or O/S while it is being used - akin to trying to get it to commit suicide which it won't do.

The method is to fdisk and format your hard drive from a Windows 9x startup disk and re-install W98.

You may have problems doing this if your XP is NTFS.
