I am sure I read in a magazine that you can install xp over the win 98 OS.
Any links to this info or short answer please?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You simply put the XP

Sorry pressed the wrong key.

You simply put the XP disk in your cd drive and follow the instructions. When it asks if you want to upgrade or do a fresh install choose upgrade. Although it is better to do a clean install of XP if you choose this remember to back up any files or data you want to keep as they will be lost in a clean install.

As long as your system is upto spec you should have no problem updating 98 to XP Microsoft website specifies a P233 CPU 128Mb RAM + 1.5gb HDD Space I would say that you need at least 256mb of RAM tho.
