I currently own a PC with windows 98 but will soon bite the bullet and buy a new PC with windows XP.
Will my old programs which run on 98 run on XP?
If not, is it possible to run 98 and XP on the new pc? So that I can still use my current programs.

XP also has a "compatability" mode, to enable older programs to be run.
