Hi JAYNO20,

There is a way!

Download TweakUI from Microsoft for WinXP, and there is a version for Win98: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

Launch TweakUI, and click on General, then Focus from the left-hand panel, and check the box to prevent applications from stealing focus. Then set it to Flash Task bar 3 times.

That should do it.
