Is it possible to install Windows XP over Windows 98se and if so what if any are the pitfalls, Is it possible to load them side by side. I have a 40 gb external hard drive could I install xp onto that. Be grateful of any sugestions

that your PC meets the XP requirements?

Be careful. When I moved from W98SE to XP it rendered all my software and hardware peripherals obsolete. I had to upgrade to later versions of software and will have to buy a new printer and scanner.

Personally, I don't like XP but, that apart, I do suggest you research it thoroughly before you upgrade. Do you REALLY need XP?

yes you can install them side by side, by having a dual boot system
