I do believe that the upgrade versio of XP is also a full version in itself.

Installing Win98 and then upgrading to Xp is useless. XP is a completely different fish from 98. Your computer will copy the 98 stuff, and then install XP, wasting drive space that you'll have to go back and erase.

Here's a link to help you with installation- http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/832/
