    u will HAVE to do a new install of 98
    after which ur XP wont work ofcourse
    i cant seem to find the topic where this was discussed here already ... neither cna i rem. the link

    ull need either a bootable cd of WIN98 ... or ull need to have a bootable floppy disk to go into dos
    from there u can run the win98 setup .. NOT FROM XP

    after this when ur XP doesnt work no more ... ull have to use the XP boot cd ...
    enter the recovery console ...and type in
    "fixboot"
    "fixmbr"
    without the quote ofcourse

    BTW u can use XP's compatibility mode to run most programs

    hmm

    Windows 98 c:
    Windows XP Pro D:

    all u need to do is make a bootable floppy or a bootable cdrom and boot into command prompt

    then install windows 98
    if u have it on ur cdrom then to start the setup in ms-dos,
    x:>cd windows98
    x:\windows98>setup.exe /is

    this wod install the windows 98 again on ur c: anfter following the necessary steps in setup

    as far as possible backup all ur data on c: including ur desktop, my documents folder to d: and format c: and make a clean install for better performance

    i guess this wod do the trick :lol:

    huh

    pranay can every system run winxp??

    man ppl dun dump there modest p2 400mhz kinda machines to scrap

    n besides some softwares have compatibility issues with windows xp

    also, windows 98 is the most used and "still believed" to b "the most user-friendly" OS for a comman man in india.

    trust me dude id be the first one to jump at the opportunity to tell someone that
    the fact of the matter is the old topic was deleted ... it no longer exists
    i couldnt find it atleast
    thats y .. make sure of something before u say it ;) and always post links to prove ur point

    @club_pranay ...
    the dude is only usiong 98 for his older programs
    he either doesnt know abt compatibility mode or it doesnt work for me
    anyways ppl still do use 98 ...
    i think ujjwal uses 98 .. and hes very good at troubleshooting it too ;)
