    Is there something I need to know to transfer files from my old computer (win 98) to my new machine (winxp prof) with a cd-rom/dvd drive? The old computer only has a cd-r/rw drive.

    If you are burning files from cd on 98 and putting them on an xp machine it should work fine... there is nothing you should need to do

    The XP Files and Settings Transfer Wizard does a good job of moving all files, most settings but not passwords from the onl machine to the new one.

    Go to Start, Accessories, System Tools to find it.

    Good Luck . . wrs
