Default Defragmenting screensaver

Does anyone know a good, free defragmenter that will run as a screensaver? I'm using 98, but need one that will run under XP as well.

If there aren't any good free ones, whose disktools are best?

Diskeeper has an option, set it and forget it.
set that option to screensaver and u never have to worry bout defragging, just keep ur screensaver on when u leave the comptuer and then itll defrag while its on screensaver.
