    I am trying to install XP on a PC that has 98 on it now. I want to keep all of the info on the PC from 98. Can I do an overlying OS but still be able to access all of the info created while in 98? I don't want to clean out the HDD.

    Are you using an 'upgrade' XP cd or a full install cd?

    Are you interested in a dual boot and keeping both operating systems? Or is your mission to dump 98?
