Have a look at and take their compatibility test; it will give you some idea of what's what.

If you have two partitions, try dual-booting win 98 and xp.

the usual biggest annoyance is the scanner

when i upgraded to XP i had to use windows 2000 drivers and this took about 5 days to source those

as Lú-tzé if you go to pc-pitstop click here and click on Run Test Now

it will look at your computer to see what may need upgrading
