Will be switching over in a couple of weeks, does anybody know of any site that deals with General XP troubleshooting, so I'm not on here every 5mins trying to find out about font sizes or something? Thanks TR

I understand that many SE drivers don't work on XP, so make sure you download updated ones for everything before you start, especially you modem and your graphics card - others you should be able to download once your back on-line.

Somewhere, but I can't find it at present, I 've a link to a site that has a program to test your machine before you upgrade - came out about the same time as XP. Anyone know where it is?

Its on the XP CD. You can run it by putting the CD in under Windows 98.

I would do an upgrade first (then you can roll back if you have too many problems)

Then when all is running consider doing a clean install (it can be done with the Upgrade disk as long as you have a Win98 disk) at a later date.

I bought the upgrade to xp Home from 98se. Had no problem. XP asked for the original win 98 disc as expected. I've recently done the full install to tidy things up, and was surprised not to be asked for for my old win 98 disc this time around, although I did have to re-activate my copy, which I did over the net, no need to phone Microsoft.
