Im going to rebuild a PC. new motherboard and CPU
at the moment it has win 98 second editon on it,
after the rebuild i will put on win xp home.
Should i buy xp upgrade disk or the fall retail disk. what is the diff. exept price. if i buy the upgrade. do i need to put win98 on first then xp.

if the pc does not have win98 on it if it is the same as the me upgrade it asks you to put the win98 cd in and checks that it is genuine.

Just to make it clear - the upgrade CD is fine.

As howard60 says, you don't need to actually install Win98 first - but have the CD handy as it will want to verify you have it - there's no check on it's genuineness though!
