I am useing Win 98se and I am plannining to upgrade to Win XP will my current drivers work with XP or will I have to update them?
Do you think I shoud wait for Longhorn to come out?

No windows 98 drivers will not work with WXP you will have to upgrade the drivers,WXP will as rule find the drivers but this is not always the case.
You are better doing a clean install using the full version.

As for Longhorn that has yet tobe seen,if it's going to have problems like WXP had when it first
came out i wouldn't be in a rush.

Don't do it mate. If it aint broke don't fix it.

I am still running win98se and it does everything I want it do.
