I am trying to create a home network with my W2K laptop and my W98 desktop. The W98 has been difficult to configure for the network (W2K sees W98, but W98 will not share; W98 does not see W2K). I am considering replacing W98 with WinXP, which I hear is more network-friendly. My question is: should I go with Home or Pro?
Also, how the heck do I replace an entire OS??? What are the steps to follow? I am thinking I should first back up files, then reformat the HD, then install XP. Any suggestions?
BTW, the W98 box is a 1999 Compaq Presario 5441, AMD K-6, 312 MB RAM. it is darn slow, not sure why...?
Thanks in advance! B)
