    You could do an upgrade but i don't advise it. Look for partition magic and move the old system up enough to make a small XP partition for install. Pick out what you want from win 98 and then delete and wipe that partition and resize XP. Better yet, make a new partition for the files you don't want to lose each time you reintall an OS.

    Ya, it's always better to do a fresh install. Here's how I got my system setup. Either get two harddrives or make two partitions. Make the Windows XP one about 6-10 GB. Then fill up the rest of the drive with another partition. Then what i did was installed Windows XP and all the system stuff (like codecs and that) on the small partition. Then i installed all my programs that i know i will use on the other partition, did a full Norton System scan/cleanup and that, and imaged XP install partition. Now if i fuck anything up i can easily back it up without having to reinstall almost all my crap.

    Some Where but not here
    u can do
    choose "advance installition" in setup dailog box
    but better to have 2 partition, and install new one windows on 2nd partition or use partition magic if u want to use on same drive, there is somthing called boot...dont know exactlly but it good for having 2 OS on same partition
