    First it is not recommed to install xp over windows 98 it is better to do a fresh install.

    Second no no and no there is no legal way to download windows xp from web.

    Third you cannot install or even should install windows xp from another computer becuase of WPA and because you are breaking the EULA.

    I'm going to leave this thread open for the purpose of replying to the question of upgrading to XP but keep in mind, if it's determined possible, you will have to buy a legal version of the OS.

    How much RAM do you have on this computer?
