    I have a pc running Windows 98 that will not startup. Instead of wasting time with repairs I purchased a new desktop running Windows XP.

    Is it feasible for me to salvage files from the Win98 drive if I install it as a slave inside the new desktop? What problems might I encounter?

    Please advise...any help will be much appreciated.

    Regards.

    hi,

    ive done it loads of times and never hit any problems as long as you set it to slave all should be fine in my experience.

    Cheers
