Why oh why not just goto a dual os system since most people donot upgrade OS. until they buy a new puter ,You can always make use of the old harddrive,in with your new puter and since you still have the win 98se,cd etc. and a lot of the little hex programs that i work with for certain iso chips,only respond or are written for win 98SE,also I like the dos shell feature of win98 that allows you to flash atmels and the like without having to boot up puter in dos.as I know just enough about such things to stay perpetually in trouble.(no I don't run a dual boot system I just left my old puter next to my new work in progress.(I still love my old p-3 733 , with 384 ram,and 98se)Most peoples problems with 98se are they try to run too much ram,forget to search out the little ms updates as the one that keeps 98se from hanging on shutdown,and they don't keep a clean registry and defragged HDD. But yes xp looks and seems good so far but I am sure the MS.revenge will come out and get me!!

I like winXP but ...
I have changed too many components too quick and had to call ms to reactivate winXP , I hate that .
I like win98se for the freedom to change , frequently .
If OC'ing gets "ruff" and have to reload os , 98se is easier to reload .

Make a disk image with Ghost or DriveImage after you've done your clean install + drivers + apps + activation. Saves time. Trust me.

It definitely does save time. I can restore my OS partition in 5 minutes by doing that, whereas re-installing the OS, installing drivers, and patching the OS can take several hours.
