Q. I wish to change from a computer running Windows 98 to one running Microsoft XP.
What would be transferable and how should it be done?
A. Unfortunately, you can’t go from Windows 98 to XP. You are going to need a new computer. It’s a good idea to get a computer set up with Windows Vista Premium. Most Windows 98 software will not work on Windows XP or Vista and remember all or some of your hardware may not work on XP or Vista.
