Is this possible I have a drive connected to my XP SP2 system for back ups, and was wondering if I could use it to copy data from my 98SE system and transfer it to the XP one.

Yes if the drive is formated Fat32. NTFS can see FAT32 but Fat32 cannot see NTFS. So a Hard Drive in Fat32 can be seen by both
