Upgrading from Win98 to WinXP is a "Very Bad Idea". I have heard of few to none occasions where this has worked successfully. I'd suggest reading through some of the other posts in this forum, perhaps some of the ideas will have a fix for you.

i do agree, updating to xp is a bad idea. But, 98 does not support over 128 meg of ram, after this point it takes processing power to support it, there for if you have over 512 meg of memory the graphics fail in windows.

As XP and 2000 are based on NT they have no such problem.

Therefor in my opinion it is best to upgrade to 2000
