    How am I supposed to install this if I have windows 98? I keep getting this wrong operating system message.

    Just insert the WIN XP cd in win98, then choose INSTALL XP, it will take a while then it will ask you to reboot, take the Win xp cd out, and the next time you reboot there will be a new menu for the existing OS, there choose "WINXP setup"...

    yeah. I would suggest using a 98 bootdisk. or you can use XP setup disks.
    either way, you can get a setup disk from bootdisks.com.

    WindowsXP will tell you that it can't be installed from a DOS prompt, but it's lying.

    so, backup your stuff, fdisk, boot to floppy (with CD rom support, obviously) and type:
    e:/i386/winnt or whatever you cd rom drive letter is instead of e:
