yea you may beable to download the drivers.

if not... XP can read win98 partition... its just not the other way around.

So since you say you have then networked together? right? then you can just creat a folder on the laptop, and go to properties and allow that folder to be accessed by other comps on your network.... put the disk into the XP system /right click mycomputer/map network drive... enter //"compname"/"foldername" ....and then copy the Disk files over to the win98 folder, and there you have them.
