Click Start - Run, type in:

CLEANMGR /SAGESET:1

then click OK.

When the "Disk Cleanup" window appears, place a checkmark in everything, then click OK.

Click Start - Run, type in:

CLEANMGR /SAGERUN:1

make sure that everything is checked, then click OK.

This will find and get rid of all the unnecessary files that Windows XP finds, including the Windows 98 files.:)
