a friend of mine asked me in the local ale house last night if it was possible to install 98se over the top of xp , without having to re format etc
he has the 98se full disk and wants to put it back on his compo as he just cant get on with xp (why i dont know ) i said i would ask on this site and let him know

regards bugzee

No is the short answer...

Yes is the long and complicated answer if he really wants to, but it will be more difficult than doing a format / reinstall.

If he installed XP over Win98, then he should have the option to uninstall XP.

I agree with what Diodorus Siculus says, only to add that if the C partition is now on NTFS file system, then it is definitely no.
