Did upgrade from win98 to winxp-home.Fault free and xp basically works BUT it doesn't see com4 ,or the modem or my sapphire/radeon graphics cards. i have reverted to win98 and all is normal.modem is on com4 by the way.
Is this just drivers ? com4 in particular?
if it is drivers,why doesn't xp see the hardware

Not all hardware that was supported by Win98 is supported by XP.

You might also need to go to the manufacturer's web site and download the XP drivers.
